Scripture for the day is Ecclesiastes 1:2 and Matthew 27:46

Ecclesiastes 1:2

Vanity of vanities, says the Teacher,
    vanity of vanities! All is vanity.

Matthew 27:46

And about three o’clock Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

After reading and reflecting on the passages, pray saying, Lord, you suffered in the dark for me so that I could live in the light. You experienced cosmic futility so that what I do no counts forever. How can I love and praise you enough? I can’t – but help me to start. Amen.
