Ecclesiastes is almost over. Just two chapters to go and we’ll be done learning about how meaningless life is in the Bible.
“Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.” – Ecclesiastes 11:2
This is actually good advice. Diversify your portfolio so if one area fails, your entire portfolio does not fail.
“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” – Ecclesiastes 11:5
Here’s the thing. We know how wind works and we know how a fetus develops. It’s not a mystery.
“Everything to come is meaningless.” – Ecclesiastes 11:8
This seems to include the biblical eternal life in heaven.
So there you go, more words on how meaningless life is and how meaningless everything in the future is…sigh.
Coming Soon: Ecclesiastes – Chapter 12: Untitled
