April 28: "Vanity of Vanities," Saith The Preacher (Vol. 44, pp. 335-341)

The Book of Ecclesiastes, today's selection, is perhaps the classic Biblical work of pessimism. "All is vanity," he proclaims. But at the end, he backs off and proclaims that we "must fear God and keep his Commandments; for this is the whole duty of man."

In other words, the same old, same old.
