Man is a mere phantom as he goes to and fro; he bustles about, but only in vain; he heaps up wealth, not knowing who will get it.
Looking for affection, acceptance, personal value or wealth, many of us bustle about trying in vain to make a place for ourselves in the world. Our sin is abundant, and our pride is obvious. After we meet Jesus and claim Him as our Saviour, we find our value in Christ and in His love for us. We are busy, but not busy with empty, vain bustling about for show. Instead, we seek how we may serve the One Who Saved us. Our hope of life, godliness and peace rests in walking daily in His Presence.
