Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 8

main image
In chapter 8 of Ecclesiastes, Solomon is talking about the limits of man. Man is not able to comprehend the mind of God and is not truly able to control his own circumstances. Solomon asked the question”Who is like a wise man? And who knows the interpretation of a thing?”
    Solomon knew that man has limitations and is not like God. In verse 8 he says, “No one has power over the spirit to retain the spirit and no one has power in the day of death.” Solomon also knew that it will not be well for the wicked in the course of time but it would turn out well for the righteous ultimately. Solomon concluded chapter 8 by proclaiming that man may labor to discover the mysterious workings of God but will never be able to find it out. Thank God that He unveiled His mystery of salvation in Jesus and that He has redeemed us in His great mercy and Grace.

main image
There is a lot of wisdom here in chapter 7 of Ecclesiastes. Solomon begins by proclaiming that a good name is better than precious ointment and the day of death is better than ones birth. Man ‘s days on this earth are often marked by sorrow and Solomon says that it is man’s lot in life to have some difficult times. Solomon contrast wisdom with foolishness and warns about receiving counsel from the foolish.
    Wisdom is good because it gives life to those who have it and it strengthens the wise. Solomon says it is better to hear the rebuke of the wise. Solomon concluded by warning that foolish people can lead a heart astray. We must be on guard at all times are we can become victims of Satan and his design to use other’s to bring us down.
