A pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life. -Proverbs 13:7 (MSG) So often we spend much in resources to impress others, as if in some way that improves our life or gives it meaning. Each of us is here for such a short time that it makes no sense to waste it on acquiring and exhibiting that which is very temporary in itself.
I give up; I am tired of living. Leave me alone. My life makes no sense. -Job 7:16 (GNT) Apart from a life spent with God, there is no sense to be made of anything. He alone gives us true purpose and meaning in our lives.
