Emptiness and Vanity – The Critical Lessons of the COVID-19 Lockdown Period

The world is at a standstill.

All wheels of the global socio-economic machinery have now been punctured. Major global events and activities have been suspended, with a growing possibility of cancellation/ voidance. Talk of the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Germany’s Bundesliga, Tennis and Rugby events, moving forward of the 2020 Olympics, shifting forward of the Euro 2020 Championships, and cancellation of major continental and global conferences.

The reality has now sunk into people’s minds that the COVID-19, commonly called the Coronavirus, is in control. This is unprecedented in the history of humanity, and it may never happen again at least in the foreseeable future.

Our cars are just parked in garages with nowhere to go to. Our airplanes and private jets are lying in waste, with almost all air spaces shut. Every country is busy nursing its citizens and fighting a microscopic tiny enemy!

Fashion in clothes, bags, shoes, perfumes and make-up kits have all become useless and serving no purpose at this moment in time.

There are no more urgent appointments and business meetings that can deprive any of us time to fellowship with God and our families. Our expansive and expensive church auditoriums are lying empty! It is now each man with his God in truth and in spirit.

All we need today is food and air to breathe! We just want to be alive. Nothing else matters right now.

The good news is; we all have one more chance to introspect, to reflect and ask yourself why does God need to keep me alive through this sensitive time? What is my purpose in life now and after COVID-19?

Why does God need to spare me and allow others die? Of what value am I to humanity, and to God Almighty and His kingdom that should make God to spare me?

“Again, I saw that for all toil and every skillful work a man is envied by his neighbour. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind” – Ecclesiastes 4:4.

Let us pray and repent, and seek a more purposeful living after COVID-19. God loves us all!
