Spend Your Time on Things of Eternal Value
Today I read Ecclesiastes 6 and I was reminded of Jacob 2 from the Book of Mormon. Seek ye first the kingdom of God, Jacob taught the Nephites. The point of Ecclesiastes 6 is that unless a man is good, all his wealth, power and everything else he may do, is good for nothing. If we don't do as the Lord has asked of us first, then everything else we might do or accomplish is pointless and will fade away. We need to focus our time and energy on that which has eternal value. The Savior taught as much during His lifetime also stating to not focus on things that moth can corrupt or thieves might break in and steal. We each of us have our agency, but it behooves us to spend our time and our energy on that which is righteous. Until tomorrow.
