“As I looked at everything I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless.” Ecclesiastes 2:11 NLT

Here are two more scriptural values you should live by: (1) Equality. “For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:11). In God’s eyes, no person is more important than another. Not one! Some have received more access to the things the world offers, achieved more education, or been called to higher ranks of responsibility. But in God’s eyes, no one is innately better. The ground is level at the foot of the cross, and we all approach God as sinners in need of salvation. So no matter what your position is in life, God expects you to treat everyone with the same respect. (2) Generosity. Jesus said, “Your gift will return to you in full – pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over…The amount you give will determine the amount you get back” (Luke 6:38 NLT). Others don’t determine what you receive. Even God doesn’t. You do! “The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” You’re never more like God than when you give, and you can never surpass Him at giving. The truth is, you have no reason to be anxious about not having enough if you offer generosity to others. Why is it important to have values that you live by? Solomon answers, “As I looked at everything I worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless – like chasing the wind. There was nothing really worthwhile.”
