Reflections on Ecclesiastes - Part 6
I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, He has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end (Ecc. 3:11).Every activity that God has given man has purpose when done at the right time. These activities are not useless, because man knows that there is life after death. But, exactly how and why things happen is unclear to us. Each of us has a longing to know eternity, and as Blaise Pascal pointed out.
“There is a God shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus.”
