Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 6
Key Verse: “All a man's labor is for his mouth and yet the appetite is not satisfied" (Ecclesiastes 6:7, NASB).
What do you hunger for; food for the belly or the food that gives eternal life, the Word of God?
Which do you work for the most; the needs and desires of your flesh, or your spirit?
Have you ever paused to consider eternity and your place in it? (See Ecclesiastes 3:11)
