Work ’til You’re Dead

During my quiet time this morning, I read Ecclesiastes 9:10 from the ESV

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might…

Most people, when quoting that verse, stop there. But there’s more…

…for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.

Wanna hear the JSV / NoCamo paraphrase?

Work hard, ’cause someday you’ll be dead.

The human mortality rate is currently at 100%. Let’s get to work for the glory of God!
