Everything is meaningless. All that matters is that we be thankful for what God has done for us and that we worship him. The things of this world go away to nothing, so they really don't matter at all.

At times I have to remind myself of that, though I have a hard time comprehending it and living by it.

Heh, sounds like the first portion of Ecclesiastes.

I don't believe all is meaningless. God has created us for a live life and to glorify Him. Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." That doesn't mean we go out and fill our lives with the riches and plunder of the world...just as the author of Ecclesiastes found out, it all mattered to naught, but even he says it is good to find joy and satisfaction in this life.

No doubt there are many superfluous things of this world, but not everything is meaningless. He has created everything on Earth for His glory, and we should use them as such, not to us, but to Him.

Indeed all will pass away, no question there. But it's not necessarily the end's how you get there.

I include that in the worshiping part. By living our lives joyfully as He sees fit, I'd say that counts. ;)

Word. Like being Siper-Mans.
