If you woke up on this dreary Monday feeling like Solomon, take heart!
I denied myself nothing my eyes desired;
I refused my heart no pleasure.
My heart took delight in all my labor,
and this was the reward for all my toil.
Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done
and what I had toiled to achieve,
everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind;
nothing was gained under the sun.
“It is not wrong to seek glory; the question is whether you’re looking for it from others or from the Lord. One does not even compare to the other!” from A Jane Austen Devotional
