IS ALL VANITY? – Tue, May 21, 2019

Ecclesiastes 1:16,18 KJV

I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.

[18] For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

In King Solomon’s quest for more wisdom, “more than what God had given,” he explored many different philosophies of this world. His desire for more wisdom and knowledge probably brought him more trouble than he anticipated.

The more he found out, the more he watered-down his own resolve of total commitment to God’s statutes. So at point, he would say there is much grief in wisdom and increasing sorrow in knowledge (v18).
[21/05, 6:36 am] Carlos Jay: When all our pursuits in life begin to lack the God-factor, everything begins to take a meaningless form in the long run, because the cycles would be repeated, nothing is new.

We may sample all of life’s pleasures, wealth and powers, yet all may disappoint eventually. There are too many examples of such to learn from. The whole duty of man is indeed to fear God and keep His commandments.
Keep God up there in all your pursuits, only then is victory guaranteed.

Have a blessed day.
