CHRIST TELLS YOU…
“My CHILD, VANITY is another name for FOOLISH EXPECTATION. Some people expect too much from the good things in this world. Others pretend to be bigger than they really are and try to attract attention than they deserve.
Vanity of vanities, and ALL is vanity for those who do NOT love Me, or refuse to follow My commandments. Nothing is permanent under the sun. When you love anything for its own sake, and not because it helps you do My Will, you are a VICTIM OF VANITY. Death shall take all these things away from you, and nothing will be left. How wise is the man whose appreciates this truth!
It is vanity to strive too intently for perishable riches and to fix your hopes on them.
It is vanity to be over eager for HONORS or to be consider yourself better than others.
It is vanity to follow blindly the desires of the flesh and want things that will bring GREAT PENALTY later on.
It is vanity to WISH for a long life while CARING LITTLE to life a good life.
It is vanity to give your ENTIRE ATTENTION to the PRESENT LIFE WITHOUT THINKING OF THE LIFE which will come later.
It is vanity to LOVE ONLY which is SPEEDILY PASSING AWAY, instead of fixing your heart on HEAVEN – THE HOME OF ENDLESS JOY.”
