Main point summary
Life can't make sense if we aren't on our knees in front of God. Once there, we'll not only see what's ahead of us (glory) and what's ahead of those who reject God (misery), we'll also see that what we have right now (God with us) is better than anything else the world can offer.

When my soul was embittered,
when I was pricked in heart,
I was c brutish and ignorant;
