For who knoweth what is good for man in this life,
all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow?
for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun? Ecc 6:12
All is passing, says Solomon, and we cannot find lasting joy in any element we like to touch.
It is disastrous for a man to try and find his true joy in any phrase of truth,
or in the fulfillment of ambition, or in physical or intellectual solitariness,
or in society; he will find his joy only in a personal relationship to God. ~Oswald Chambers
In what places have you tried to find JOY?
Did you find it?
