157 Won’t You Live in Vain if You Don’t Do Anything for God?

People’s entire lives are in the hands of God, and if it were not for their resolution before God, who would be willing to live in vain in this empty world of man? Why bother? Why bother? Ah … ah … Rushing in and out of the world, if they don’t do anything for God, will their entire lives not have been wasted? Even if God doesn’t deem your actions worthy of mention, will you not give a happy smile at the moment of your death? You should pursue positive progress, not negative regression, not negative regression—is this not better practice?
