Some Bad News, Some Good News

So, I have some bad news and I have some good news. Which do you want first? 

The bad news? Fantastic because that will just naturally follow the organization that this blog should follow. 

So, the bad news is that one day you will die. Yes, I know it's terrible, but your stay on this Earth will not be eternal, but will instead come to a close, as our life is but a vapor. 

Good news is that you have a place where you will live eternally, and that you should then live your life in accordance with that. You should pursue a relationship with God the Father, to find true satisfaction in Him because that will give you eternal satisfaction. 

Everything that we seek in this world for satisfaction is unsatisfactory ultimately. It may satisfy for just a few minutes, but it will not actually satisfy us even for the entirety of our vapor. Thus, if we want to enjoy this life, maybe we should find satisfaction in God. 

That way, we can enjoy our lives now and later to its utmost potential. (I never thought I would write a post about enjoying one's life, since ultimately that conveys a watered down Christianity in many forms; however, finding satisfaction in God is not the same thing as guaranteeing you prosperity if you follow God, something that is explicitly denied in Scriptures.) 

So if you don't believe me, just read the book of Ecclesiastes. It's good stuff.
