Reading along with us in Ecclesiastes? Here’s today’s reading:

Ecclesiastes 3 (ESV)

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;

  1. 11He 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.
    12I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; 13also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.❤️

  2. What great wisdom we have in this chapter. Certainly there is a balance in life that requires different approaches for different situations for which we need God’s discernment for. But to recognize in verse 11 that He has and will make all things beautiful in His time as well as placed eternity in the hearts of men. If only we would all turn to Him and trust how He will work things out and let Him reveal our part in His plan rather than rushing ahead of Him or stalling behind Him. But what a principle to under gird our lives much like Romans 8:28 does.

    And yes everything God does endures which makes His will always meaningful. And everything man does won’t and that is what makes things done independent of God meaningless. In that we are like animals, made of flesh and destined for the grave. It is only God who rescues us from that state with His image in us and the reconciliation offered through and by Christ. May we act according to the Spirit that is of God and not the flesh that has compulsions like an animal.
