I just sat down with my Bible and read most of Ecclesiastes and once again I am bewildered by the book. I guess wisdom beats folly and we are to enjoy our hard work but everything is basically meaningless. I haven't finished the book for this reading so maybe tomorrow I will see something more positive come out of the book! There is nothing new under the sun. That I believe is true. It's all be done before. Not sure what else I have to say since everything is meaningless.

Ecclesiastes? One of the most confusing books of the Bible. It's like we're given a snapshot into the writer's internal struggles and musings, going one way then another. It's like someone who knows God but refuses to throw himself or herself wholely into God's hands and ways, and suffering the indecision and confusion that results.

Yup, nothing new under the sun. And everything under the sun is meaningless. Well, we're called by God to live at a level above the sun, seated with Christ at the right hand of God in the heavenly places, so maybe that's where we're supposed to find the meaning? :)

All that men strive for under the sun is meaningless UNLESS there is the true focus. That is , if we focus all that we are, on serving God then that gives us an eternal meaning to all that we do and work for in building His Kingdom. If we just strive for ourselves, this is meaningless.
For me Ecclesiastes just underlines that.
May God Bless you Bizzy, in all you do for Him.
