Chasing After The Wind

On Sunday, I worshiped at People's Park Baptist Church, KL where guest speaker Rev Khoo preached on the Book of Ecclesiastes and he also shared about his teaching mission in China. This Book is reputed to be written by King Solomon. He had everything in the world, palaces, gardens, art works,etc, you name it he had it. Yet he found life meaningless. He tried to get what ever earthly possessions to be happy yet he was miserable. In this Book which talked about meaninglessness of life, yet this Book is meaningful. It tells us about live. The bottom line is, without God our lives have no meaning.

Throughout the ages, people pondered over the meaning of life. Some wrote stories about it some wrote poems. There is a fairly famous poem called "Dash" by Linda Ellis which described about meaning of life especially the "dash" between your date of birth and date of death. A few words from the poem ..

For it matters not how much we own;
The cars the house the cash
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

The lesson is do not Chase after the wind.

Watch the video of the full length of this inspirational poem.
