This is Meaningless

This morning I woke to the news that Michael Jackson is dead.

My thoughts went straight to Ecclesiastes chapter 6 where it describes a rich person who seems to have it all, yet without the God-given ability to enjoy it all.

I have seen another evil under the sun, and it weighs heavily on men: God gives a man wealth, possessions and honour, so that he lacks nothing his heart desires, but God does not enable him to enjoy them, and a stranger enjoys them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil.

I think all the rich and famous should read Ecclesiastes more.
