Time of Your Life Part 4

“Time of Your Life 4”

These are the words of the Teacher, King David’s son, who ruled in Jerusalem. 2 “Everything is meaningless,” says the Teacher, “completely meaningless!” -Ecclesiastes 1:1-2

What do people get for all their hard work under the sun? -Ecclesiastes 1:3

Generations come and generations go, but the earth never changes. -Ecclesiastes 1:4

History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. -Ecclesiastes 1:9

I have observed something else under the sun. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise sometimes go hungry, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being in the right place at the right time. -Ecclesiastes 9:11

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end. -Ecclesiastes 3:11

And I know that whatever God does is final. Nothing can be added to it or taken from it. God’s purpose is that people should fear him. -Ecclesiastes 3:14

I said to myself, “In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds.” -Ecclesiastes 3:17

That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. -Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. -Psalm 90:12
