Many are they who would look to the success and power of men of distinction as gems to be desired. However, they fail to consider the means by which those gems were obtained (Prov. 3:31-32). Some of the world's leaders commanded armies and conquered civilizations; they obtained wealth and women, fame, and glory; yet these were the most oppressive and evil men the world has ever know (Hitler, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, etc).
People are not willing to look beyond the things these people possess to see what they compromised to obtain them. There are young kids fascinated by the kind of dress and conduct these people show. The kids dress like them, talk like them, act like them, etc. Why? Because these people have fame, fortune, and sex. Solomon knew the vanity of pursuing these things more than anyone else. He knew that the pursuit of righteousness with God is really all that men should consider. He said, "Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man's all," (Eccl. 12:13). Do not think that he who has the most things is happiest. Those who have achieved these things through wicked means, God will judge.
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
