ALL AMOUNTS TO NOTHING – Mon, Oct 16, 2015

Ecclesiastes 1:3, 7-8 KJVPrint
What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?

[7] All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

[8] All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it : the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.

We thank God for seeing us through a whole month, reading Proverbs. Today we begin 12days of Ecclesiastes, a book also written by the Philosopher, Solomon.

The introduction I read from my Bible suggests that though Ecclesiastes, just like Job, is found in the bible, it is purely and honestly a recording of Solomon’s life experiences and so may not mean the Bible endorses all of those statements. However, the depth of his wisdom reveals much to learn from.

If indeed the world was all about what we came here to ‘grab,’ then it would be a meaningless place, because we die with nothing in our hands. We leave all we came to ‘grab.’ Nothing indeed can satisfy, except that which is not of this world.

As we journey through Ecclesiastes, I pray you get knocked out by these nuggets of wisdom, and relate them to your search for more wealth and pleasure.

Have a blessed day.
