Satisfaction? Ecclesiastes 12:1; 8-14 Meaningless, meaningless; everything is meaningless - or - vanity of vanities; all is vanity. Not the most encouraging way to begin and end a book... but it’s how the Preacher/Teacher from Ecclesiastes does it! He ends where he begins... Of course, meaningless-ness or vanity is his way of expressing the futility of life in a fallen world... In other words, life without God. But... if we’re perfectly honestly... most of us would have to admit, that we all spend a huge chunk of our lives in meaningless pursuits... like... striving to make more money than we need, or worrying about what new t-shirt or tennis shoe or purse is “in style” - or lusting after

Nick Foles was the first quarterback in the history of the Super Bowl to ever catch a touchdown pass. And it was the first Super Bowl title for Philadelphia, a team that was the underdog in all three of its post-season games. Nick Foles has to be the most famous backup quarterback in the world today.
