Ecclesiastes 1:13

king-solomonAnd I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; this burdensome task God has given to the sons of man, by which they may be exercised.

  1. My first thought was anthropology, it’s so interesting. It can definitely keep you very busy and exercised. And it can seem very important and worthwhile, to study us and figure us out, to some extent it is worthwhile… but not a very far extent. Some people say that the bible is the total history of us – past, present, future – but I think that it is a better perspective to see it as a history of something that God is doing. And more so, being that God transcends time, knowing what our choices were gonna be, we can trust that He knows what He’s doing. “Let us create man,” may seem like it happened a long time ago. However, “in our image” is still being accomplished. This refinement process happening both on a macro and a micro scale, through the Blood of Jesus… both the entirety of mankind through all time and also each individual’s heart being refined/sanctified. So, Solomon’s time – our time – of vain accumulation of information should rightfully lead to the same conclusion… it’s all meaningless if you don’t fear God and shun evil.

    1. Amen !!!! 1 Corinthians 15:58 Our labor is not in vain when it’s in the Lord !!! Before Christ my life was meaningless, hopeless but God now has brought His meaning into my life. Everyday now I recognize the worth of each day, it truly is a gift from God to be alive.
