A live dog is better off than a dead Lion

Ecc 9:4-5  Anyone who is among the living has hope—even a live dog is better off than a dead lion! For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them is forgotten. (Today’s New International Version)

I don’t know if you are aware of who Amanda Todd is but the story of her life, which came to a tragic end will (or at least should) give you food for thought. The video below will give you an idea of her story. I implore you to watch it after reading through these scribblings. Her tragic end goes to reiterate the point of the scripture above. That point is that without hope, life will lose meaning to anyone of us. The question for you and me to ask ourselves is “Where does my hope in life come from?” I can guarantee that if our hope is not rooted on solid ground/ an unshakable foundation, hopelessness will quickly set in and life will seem pointless. I’m careful to use “seem” and not “become” because I know for a fact that life is given for a reason. This is actually not just a fact but the TRUTH. “What is TRUTH?”, one might ask; that is a discussion for another time?
