• Ecclesiastes 1:2-11
    "Vanity of vanities," says the Preacher;
    "Vanity of vanities, all is vanity."
    What profit has a man from all his labor
    In which he toils under the sun?
    One generation passes away, and another generation comes;
    But the earth abides forever.
    The sun also rises, and the sun goes down,
    And hastens to the place where it arose.
    The wind goes toward the south,
    And turns around to the north;
    The wind whirls about continually,
    And comes again on its circuit.
    All the rivers run into the sea,
    Yet the sea is not full;
    To the place from which the rivers come,
    There they return again.
    All things are full of labor;
    Man cannot express it.
    The eye is not satisfied with seeing,
    Nor the ear filled with hearing.
    That which has been is what will be,
    That which is done is what will be done,
    And there is nothing new under the sun.
    Is there anything of which it may be said,
    "See, this is new"?
    It has already been in ancient times before us.
    There is no remembrance of former things,
    Nor will there be any remembrance of things that are to come
    By those who will come after.
     
  • 1 John 2:15-17
    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
     
  • Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
    Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
    Fear God and keep His commandments,
    For this is man's all.
    For God will bring every work into judgment,
    Including every secret thing,
    Whether good or evil.
     
  • Matthew 6:33
    But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
     
  • Romans 8:18
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
     
  • Romans 8:20-22
    For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.
     
  • Ecclesiastes 1:15
    What is crooked cannot be made straight,
    And what is lacking cannot be numbered.
     
  • Ecclesiastes 1:17-18
    And I set my heart to know wisdom and to know madness and folly. I perceived that this also is grasping for the wind.
    For in much wisdom is much grief,
    And he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.
     
  • Hebrews 1:10-12
    And: " You, LORD, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth,
    And the heavens are the work of Your hands.
    They will perish, but You remain;
    And they will all grow old like a garment;
    Like a cloak You will fold them up,
    And they will be changed.
    But You are the same,
    And Your years will not fail."
