Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 11

main image
Solomon came to understand that man knows very little about how God works. In chapter 11 he begins to encourage those who would read and hear these words to “ cast their bread upon the waters” and it will return to you. This speaks of being generous toward others and having faith to sow into the lives of others.
Solomon reminds us that the mysteries of God are often hidden from man. Man cannot answer how a child is formed in a mother’s womb; nor how a day will turn out. He cautions young people to be careful not to follow your heart or desire what the eyes behold because God will judge us for living that way. He ends this chapter by encouraging people to remove evil from our flesh for this leads to vanity.  These words of wisdom come from God. We would be wise and blessed to obey them.

Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 10

 Solomon used great words of wisdom in chapter 10 when he talked about the danger of a little folly spoiling a good reputation. He also talked about the words of a wise man and those of fools. There is wisdom in conducting ourselves in a way that glorifies God and that  God honors. Solomon proclaimed that a country that has a child for a king is in trouble.
We need to pray for our leaders that they would be people of integrity. A country suffers when the leaders are foolish and make poor decisions. Pray for our nation and our leaders that they would be God honoring people and make wise decisions. “blessed in the nation who’s God is the Lord.”
