Well, actually, no.
At least not as a whole.
It’s like the words of the Preacher in Ecclesiastes 1:11: “We don’t remember what happened in those former times. And in future generations, no one will remember what we are doing now.”
Humanity is ever learning the same lessons. You pick up a few pointers to pass along to your kids but by then they are involved in the throes of figuring life out without you.
There is a simple solution: Calvary.
Calvary is God invading and subjugating the futility of human existence.
But, alas, Jesus says to that, “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)
Run to the cross and cling to it. It hails the end of despair.
And by all means, live, without waiting for someone else to lead, praying that someone will follow.
