Sometimes the best advice given is based upon principles that seem obvious, simple, and commonly known.

The power in that advice lies in its disciplined application; those who follow through-reap a harvest. It’s not easy to remain focused on reaching our goals. There are so many things that eat away at our resolve. However if we persevere we will reach our desired outcomes.


So as we read through the oracle’s advice our reaction can vary from “wow” to “I already knew that” – …or something else. The important thing to remember is everything we do is in a greater context! So go ahead and get to the top of the mountain-but remember the things that really matter!


Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Now all has been heard;
    here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
    for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
    including every hidden thing,
    whether it is good or evil.

Stay Focused! Stay Happy!
