The book of Ecclesiastes, as short as it is, is one of the most mysterious works in the Bible. It looms before us as the sphinx of Hebrew literature, with its knotty, unresolved struggles intermingling with its unanswered arguments and cynical observations of life.
Never discount anything of your past. God can pick it up and use it in the most incredible ways.
If you have skills or talents you've put on the back burner, don't be surprised if one day you find yourself in a position where God gives you an opportunity to use them again. He draws from your life experiences at just the right time and in just the right place.
A proverb is a pithy statement of bite-sized wisdom. Up until now in this study of the Bible, we’ve found history and biography, prophecy and poetry in Scripture…but not much philosophy except, perhaps, in Job. The book of Proverbs offers a wealth of information to aid us in wise living. What the Psalms are to our devotional life, the book of Proverbs is to our practical life. In terse and striking ways, the profound genius of these maxims lies in their shrewd concentration of truth.
