Ecclesiastes 8-9

I have to tell you again, “I love this book.” It’s full of goodies.

A man’s wisdom makes his face shine, and the hardness of his face is changed. Truth. I’ve seen it.

Because the sentence against an evil deed is not executed speedily, the heart of the children of man is fully set to do evil. Truth. I’ve seen it.

However much man may toil in seeking [the work of God and the work done under the sun], he will not find it out. Truth. I’ve tried it.

Let your garments be always white. Let not oil be lacking on your head. I’m thinking about trying it.

Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that he has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and in your toil at which you toil under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might. Truth. I’m living it.

Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. Truth. I’ve seen it.

 The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools. Truth. I hope this blog represents it.
