Reflections on Ecclesiastes - Part 12
The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgement, with every secret thing, whether good or evil (Ecc. 12:13-14).From the dust of the ground our bodies came, and from the dust of the ground our bodies will return. Death makes everyone's life pointless, unless there is something that continues on after death. The benefits of fearing God and keeping his commandments last long after life on the earth, because there is life after death.
