A Greater Purpose

Nine times in the first six chapters of Ecclesiastes, Solomon uses the phrase “chasing after the wind.” He implies that to chase after even the good things in life without a greater purpose on the horizon of our efforts will enslave us to spend our lives chasing only after the purposeless winds of life. That ill-fated chase takes place because we were pursuing things and experiences that have no lasting meaning and were not aligned with a greater purpose.  It would be wise to discover that higher purpose as soon as possible in this life so that at the end of our days, we will leave behind a testimony of meaning and substance that happened because somewhere along the way we changed the course and direction of our life-experiences to align with God's greater purpose for our existence.
