PUTTING LIFE IN FOCUS



"'Meaningless!  Meaningless!'
says the Teacher.
'Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.'"
(Ecclesiastes 1:2 NIV)

That is the way life seems some times.
And more so everyday.




Of course a person can always look through rose colored glasses.
Or filter life through their outlook and think that will change something.

Consider, 
Emile Coue de la Chataigneraie
the French psychologist and pharmacist.

He came up with the mantra,
"Every day, in every way, I'm getting better and better."

In fact he got so good that he 
committed suicide.

It must have hurt his feelings being so much better than every one else.


Any filter or lens that mankind dreams up to bring life into focus is 
going to fail

There is only one lens or filter that will truly put life into focus.
That is the word of God.
The Holy Bible.



If we will allow God to shape our thinking through His word.
Then and only then can we begin to understand what life is all about.
