Ecclesiastes is a scary book to read. It’s the ultimate witness to the futility of human experience when we try to go off on our own, live our own way, build our house without God.
But it also offers good God advice (Ecclesiastes 7:10,14;12:13-14) –
“Do not say, ‘Why were the old days better than these?’
For it is not wise to ask such questions.
When times are good, be happy;
but when times are bad, consider this:
God has made the one
as well as the other.
Therefore, no one can discover
anything about their future.
Do what he tells you.
And that’s it.”
Here’s to living well in 2013!
