1 The words of the Teacher, son of David, king in Jerusalem:
2 “Meaningless! Meaningless!” says the Teacher. “Utterly meaningless!
Everything is meaningless.” 3 What do people gain from all their labors at
which they toil under the sun? 4 Generations come and generations go, but
the earth remains forever. 5 The sun rises and the sun sets, and hurries back
to where it rises. 6 The wind blows to the south and turns to the north; round
and round it goes, ever returning on its course. 7 All streams flow into the
sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they
return again. 8 All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye
never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. 9 What has been
will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new
under the sun.
1. There is POWER in MONOTONY.
4 Lazy hands make for poverty, but diligent
hands bring wealth.
PROVERBS 13:4 NLT
4 Lazy people want much but get little, but those
who work hard will prosper.
1 CORINTHIANS 9:24-27
24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets
the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who
competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown
that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight
like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make
it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be
disqualified for the prize.
2. God SHAPES us through our MONOTONOUS ROUTINE.
3. The MONONOTOUS leads to the MIRACULOUS.
‘Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with
all your might…’
