Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 10

main image
 Solomon used great words of wisdom in chapter 10 when he talked about the danger of a little folly spoiling a good reputation. He also talked about the words of a wise man and those of fools. There is wisdom in conducting ourselves in a way that glorifies God and that  God honors. Solomon proclaimed that a country that has a child for a king is in trouble.
We need to pray for our leaders that they would be people of integrity. A country suffers when the leaders are foolish and make poor decisions. Pray for our nation and our leaders that they would be God honoring people and make wise decisions. “blessed in the nation who’s God is the Lord.”

Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 9

main image
Chapter 9 of Ecclesiastes would be a very depressing  chapter if you don’t understand what Solomon is attempting to do. Solomon writes Ecclesiastes to show that life has very little purpose and meaning if you do not believe in God. If you didn’t know better, you would think that Solomon was an atheists. What he writes in this chapter is that life has very little meaning and you have no control over how life will turn out for you.
    Solomon is showing how desperate man is without any understanding of God. As one writer has said “Ecclesiastes does not pretend to teach the gospel. Rather, it encourages the reader to a God -centered worldview rather than falling victim to frustrations and unanswered questions.” Ecclesiastes is one of the most unusual and hard to understand books of the Bible. God used it to show us how foolish and futile it is to live life without an eternal perspective.
