Essentially saying that when we make foolish decisions we make things much more difficult for ourselves. The fool that is working in the fields makes things so much harder because he does not know where to go with the harvest.

Vanity of Vanities; All is Vanity

When we decide to say something hurtful we have to take a lot of time to mend that wrong. When we are unwise with our finances we have to spend years under the weight of debt. So as we navigate life, we must be cautious and thoughtful about the decisions we make. We all have opportunities to pursue learning and wisdom through discipleships, or council, or Connect Group relationships. The question is, will you seek that council? Today you should read: Ecclesiastes 9.

Eat food with joy! Wear fine clothes! Are all of our days meaningless?

RESPONSE (Ecclesiastes 3:4)

Without a relationship with God through Jesus Christ, yes. A person without a relationship with Jesus may look at all the evil in the world in despair, knowing that there is no hope. A person without a relationship with Jesus may see everything as meaningless, and try to find satisfaction in food, drink, clothing, or earthly relationships.

It is how you view evil, suffering, and your purpose that makes all the difference.

Do you generally look at things as meaningless or to have a God-given purpose? Thus, Abel was the worthless one compared to Cain, given of God, who was being raised as the warrior to defeat Satan who duped Woman to sin Ge ; 1Ti The use of hebel is also significant in that one has life while one has breath; the moment that breathing stops, life stops. This is the wondrous intricacy of Hebrew that is missed because most Christians do not read the Old Testament much or do not take the time to look behind their vernacular language to understand even the definitions of the original languages.

They remained trapped in their illusion of knowledge that may in fact be in precise if not incorrect; but, I digress.

Solomon, for all his wives, riches, power and fame, knew he would die Ec ; ; Ja During his life he observed that everything is cyclic which to him was pointlessness; or as we would say today, nihilistic. His wisdom only concluded life was pointless for the rich and the poor.

The rich cannot take their riches with them, making them like the poor. Death was the great equalizer; a fact not lost on Job either who lived much earlier Job Basically, Solomon identifies the futility of life when only death waits at the end. This is the view of the natural person 1Co Whereas Plato envisioned hope for some to escape the illusion of the cave; Solomon only saw death looming ever closer for everyone without exception.

For him there was no hope within himself since he could not conquer death but must in fact be overcome by death. At the end everyone becomes the same: dead. And, along the way everyone lives within the illusions of their worldview that each will be different, each will find the secret and conquer death. Yet, each dies gasping for the next hebel, breath, until the body fails. Who then cares about politics, philosophy, or possessions? Yet, this is also the answer that makes the hope offered by the Bible different.

Christ told Nicodemus that there are two types of people: those born of the flesh who remain in the flesh and those born of ruah or Spirit Jo It is like a wind that comes and goes mysteriously.

Man then set about to construct his own reality via government and religion beginning with Cain Ge Yet, death removes this illusion confronting the person with absolute reality Lk In that place there is no great, small, white, black, American, Chinese for all are equal. Each soul there wanted to live an eternity without God and they will have that wish fulfilled. For those natural people whom God saved down through the years death will be rather different Ep Solomon arrived at the only viable solution open to man: Reverence God who will bring every deed, secret or not, into judgment Ec This is why we are to learn and practice discernment; so that we can pierce through the illusions of life, layer by layer knowing true good from hopeless evil He
