Scripture for the day is Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

What has been is what will be,
    and what has been done is what will be done;
    there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Is there a thing of which it is said,
    “See, this is new”?
It has already been,
    in the ages before us.
11 The people of long ago are not remembered,
    nor will there be any remembrance
of people yet to come
    by those who come after them.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, whatever I do “in the Lord is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:58). Because of Jesus’ resurrection I know that I will be resurrected, and so it is not my status in this world but in the next that defines me. I praise and thank you for that. Amen.
