Those who pursue the allusion that vanity conjures, are soon to fall upon the rusted heap with those whose potential to establish a righteous legacy has perished.
The World precariously places today's notables upon the fading marquee. The famous and the infamous carry the headiness but for a moment in time, and then in the shroud of "death and dying" they are moved from where "occasion" recalls, or "never" consigns them to the depths of failed remembrance.
The nobility of true heroism is found in every life governed by righteous principles and in the hearts which beat for the greater good. It is found in the higher things upon which the lowly soul is raised up in Christ to serve with enduring excellence and compelling love.
The true character of a man exists in the person and principles enthroned upon his heart, that which he chooses to live for and is willing to die for. If a man seats himself upon the throne of his heart, there is nothing but vanity within him. Vanity is like the footprint in sand that is soon washed away.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades,
Because the breath of the Lord blows upon it;
Surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
But the word of our God stands forever.”
1 Corinthians 9:25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.
