Ecclesiastes 9:10 NIV “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead……
How many times a day do you put your responsibilities on hold? How often do you do you fulfill your tasks half-heartedly? We all get one chance at the life that God has given us on this earth, and we must live it well. Each and everyone ought to keep in mind that the gifts and talents and wisdom and strength and all the different abilities that God has given us can only be utilized while we’re living here on this earth. We are all foreigners on this earth and once we go to the grave there’s nothing we can do with all that we possessed.
The gifts and talents that we each have at our disposals display power only on this earth. This is the more reason why we must live our lives in fullness doing all that we can, and doing everything with all our might. We must do our best in everything we are faced with because all that we have to offer can only be offered on this earth. All we can display can only be displayed here. Put all your might and all your strength in whatever you know how to do best. You cannot shine while you are dead and buried six-feet under. Therefore let us not waste away our strength, wisdom, etc. Rather let us put all we have to good use while we have the opportunity to do so. Your time is now, so utilize it the best possible way you can, because no one can live this life for you.
10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom
