DAILY DEVOTIONAL

 
 
DAY 22
 
READ
ECCLESIASTES 6:7-12

 

Everyone’s toil is for their mouth,
    yet their appetite is never satisfied.
What advantage have the wise over fools?
What do the poor gain
    by knowing how to conduct themselves before others?
Better what the eye sees
    than the roving of the appetite.
This too is meaningless,
    a chasing after the wind.

10 Whatever exists has already been named,
    and what humanity is has been known;
no one can contend
    with someone who is stronger.
11 The more the words,
    the less the meaning,
    and how does that profit anyone?

12 For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone?

 
 
WATCH
 

 
 
ASK
 

1. How often do you feel that your eyes roam towards what you do not have, rather than appreciate what you do have?

 

2. Spend this week writing down 3 things you are grateful for every day.

 

 
PRAY
 

Pray that your heart will become content with what you do have, rather than spending energy in pursuit of what you don’t have.
