On Sunday, August 1, the first reading is taken from Ecclesiastes. It is part where the sacred writer declares that everything is "vanity". The song, "For Your Glory" takes the verses from Ecclesiastes. There is a time for everything. A time for living and a time for dying. There is a time to laugh and a time to cry. But in all of these seasons of life, we are to offer worship to God.
Year after year, summers come and then they give way to autumns. New life is born and life passes away. There is a pattern and a regularity to life, perhaps it's even a monotony, that makes the writer of Ecclesiastes say that everything vanity. Yet, there is something that is in fact new: our worship. All of the seasons are God's and are for His glory. Our lives are God's and are for His glory. Everything is for His glory. That is the meaning and inspiration of the song.
