Over the last… however many months… I’ve had the sense that the world really seems to be getting more and more crazy. It isn’t just crazy in this country; craziness seems to be everywhere to one degree or another these days in many areas of life. As I was thinking about this, along with what to write about next, it occurred to me that it would be rather timely to re-run my series on the book of Ecclesiastes.
Why- what does this have to do with Ecclesiastes?
In Ecclesiastes Solomon tells of his great search for wisdom. He does so by writing from two completely different points of view; one is from the natural human point of view, and the other is from the point of view of God and His people. In our times when we look at things from that natural human viewpoint, the world around us appears to have gone entirely mad. Yet when we look at the same things from a more heavenly point of view we quickly realize that this is really the normal state of affairs without God. It seems to me that in these crazy times, this might be a good reminder for all of us to see things for what they truly are, and place our complete trust and hope in our Lord. Thus I am re-running these posts which first appeared here more than 2 1/2 years ago, beginning today.
Please plan to join the journey with me; I’ll get started at 11:30 am Eastern (US) time today, see you then!
