Well who did you guess wrote the State Farm jingle? If you guessed Barry Manilow you were right. He also wrote the famous Band Aid commercial "I am stuck on band-aid, cause band-aids stuck on me." In fact he won the 1976 Clio Award for his band-aid jingle.


Hey, Do you know, What the tree said to the flowers in spring? Yep, They say; It seems like you bloomed overnight. Ha ha

Eccl. 2:13,14 "I thought, Wisdom is better than foolishness, just as light is better than darkness. For the wise can see where they are going, but fools walk in the dark. Yet I saw that the wise and the foolish share the same fate."


In these two verses Solomon takes on the simplistic viewpoint of the person who takes no thought for the eternal, as well as, the keys of life. "Don't fall into the trap of disregard for our eternal future."


Many powerful, important, humanly wise men have fallen into this trap. The result of this is that his "legacy" his children may easily fall into this same trap. Solomon ultimately came to this same conclusion, so as a result he wrote the book of Proverbs which continually sought to reach his legacy his children, as well as, the youth of each generation to come.


We must be careful that we don't fall into this human trap. The thinking that we are only living for our lifetime. When in fact, we must pass on the tremendous, life altering skill of passing on this vital truth. Live with His relationship (thats our Heavenly Father's voice in our mind). Many times I find my parents favoring voice in my mind, though they have been gone from this earth many years.


I remember when falling ill with Covid those people who had touched my life in the past, refreshing my mind with these eternal truths for many nights to come & even now return to impress on me the importance of our relationship with our Eternal Father.


You see our roll of mentoring is vitally important to our children, for the wisdom that our relationship with our Father brought to our life, is meant to be passed on to our children. For if we fail to make our spiritual walk with our "Father" and His "Spirit" our number one priority to pass on to our children, then Solomon's conclusion would be right. "They die, ... and are soon forgotten."


However, should we make our relationship with our "Father" relevant, vital, life altering, then we will go on in our legacy. Never to be forgotten, never to be disregarded, for "His Words" never return, falter or fall void.


So Go With God, instill His words in those who He surrounds you with, then your "Legacy" will go on for eternity. We see this laid out in the recounting of the various kings of Israel & Judah and the outcome of their rule. Those who pleased the Lord with their reign, had great success & most times even passed His favor onto the next generation. Keep your eye on the target, stay vigilant, remain focused on your objectives, to follow the Savior and His words for they & He will never fail you.


Phil. 3:13 "... this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before."
