Reflections on Ecclesiastes - Part 11
It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for this is the end of all mankind, and the living will lay it to heart (Ecc. 7:2).Consider the end of you life, so that you live your life in a meaningful way.
In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider: God has made the one as well as the other, so that man may not find out anything that will be after him (Ecc 7:14).If you get caught up with the ups and downs of life, you will not see God's purpose in all of eternity. Life is but a breath.
