Hank Wilson — (Not the entire script) Wars, rumors of war, pestilence, pandemic, food shortages, more and more the headlines of today have to make everyone nervous. So we worry, in fact I had a friend ask me about if it was wrong to try and predict the future using astrology. It was because of uncertainty a fear of the unknown. Now I’m not a believer in Astrology or fortune tellers or anyone who claims to be able to predict the future. I do my best not to worry about it because we are told in Matthew 6:34, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow, will bring its own worries. Today’s troubles is enough for today.” We worry about stuff that might never happen, all of our worry won’t change what’s going to happen. We fear the unknown and fear can paralyze us from doing what we need to be doing.
I think that often we fear the future because we are unsure of our life’s meaning, our purpose. We all know we’re going to pass away at some point, so life can seem meaningless, in Ecclesiastes 3:19, it is written, “For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of beasts is the same. As one dies so dies the other; indeed, they all have the same breath and there is no advantage for man over beast, for all is vanity.” We often see the word vanity in the book of Ecclesiastes and sometimes folks wonder about it, another word for it is futility. We often feel like things have not meaning, our efforts are for nothing, after all in that verse, it is written that men and animals all face the same fate it doesn’t matter who we are. Further on in Ecclesiastes, in 4:4 we find, “I have seen that every labor and every skill which is done is the result of rivalry between a man and his neighbor. This too is vanity and striving after wind.” ….
