Living Life Backward - Part One


A proper perspective on DEATH is the key to true LIFE.

These are the words of the Teacher, King Davids son, who ruled in Jerusalem. Everything is meaningless, says the Teacher, completely meaningless! Ecclesiastes 1:12 (NLT)

Truth #1: Creation is chasing its TAIL.

We dont remember what happened in the past, and in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now. 

Ecclesiastes 1:11 (NLT)

Truth #2: We are chasing the WIND

I said to myself, Look, I am wiser than any of the kings who ruled in Jerusalem before me. I have greater wisdom and knowledge than any of them. So I set out to learn everything from wisdom to madness and folly. But I learned firsthand that pursuing all this is like chasing the wind. 

Ecclesiastes 1:1617 (NLT)

Thats the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyones duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. 

Ecclesiastes 12:1314 (NLT)


Fear God and OBEY his commands.

BOTTOM LINE: A proper perspective on DEATH is the key to true LIFE.

THE CHALLENGE:  What needs to be made right TODAY?
