VIII. MAIN BODY:
Our entire duty, and work here on earth is to worship our Maker but unbelievers have missed it, they used their life here on earth to be rich, famous and acquire lots of properties thinking that this is the end, while we think this is only the beginning, we would rather be rich in spiritual blessing rather than the things of this world, for this is only pre-beginning of our lives here on earth, not the real one, for our life is in GOD with Him.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (Amplified Bible)
12:13 All has been heard; the end of the matter is: Fear God [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is] and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation, the object of God’s providence, the root of character, the foundation of all happiness, the adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun] and the whole [duty] for every man.
Psalms 78:25 (Amplified Bible)
78:25 Everyone ate the bread of the mighty [man ate angels’ food]; God sent them meat in abundance.
