In our desire to have quick, instant, results, we often work with a dull blade. We don't want to do the right preparatory work, so we foolishly grind away. We eventually get exhausted, and we start to drift, losing our way from God. How can we do the right work ahead of time so that we can keep our blade sharpened, preserve our energy, and see more fruit in our life?

ABOUT THIS SERIES: 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.
