 It is never too late to get back on track. Whether 50 or 15, it is vital for us to know how to chart a course and stay on course. We are either like a raft, a speed boat, or a sailboat. We either drift like a raft, being pushed along by circumstances or emotions or convenience, or we charge through challenges like a speed boat, only to run out of gas or overheat as we work in our own strength, or we can be a sail boat. A sail boat has no power in itself, but finds its strength from an outside source. It adjusts itself to the circumstances, and uses that power to navigate upon the waters. How do we learn to adjust our sails in difficulty?


If life sometimes seems empty and meaningless, you aren't alone. One Preacher in the bible even agrees. He surveys his life's great accomplishments and successes, and sees that ultimately, it's all in vain. So what is the point of living? He concludes that in the end, when we live our lives not simply "under the sun," but "unto the Son," all that is meaningless in life takes on great meaning, even eternal meaning, and gives us much to live and hope for.
