Bible Reading Challenge Week 36 Day 4

Our reading challenge for the day is Ecclesiastes 9-12. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

Ecclesiastes 9 - In fact, often the life of the righteous and of the sinner look remarkably similar. But he who trusts in God has hope. We can live in that hope and trust that the LORD will give us his blessing as we go about our normal business.

Ecclesiastes 10 - Wisdom is to great advantage. It only takes a little foolishness to condemn us, but wisdom is always of benefit.

Ecclesiastes 11 - Fear of the future can hinder us from our normal work, as the future always bears some element of risk. Yet it is wisdom to go about our business trusting the LORD.

Ecclesiastes 12 - We do best to rejoice in God in our youth, while we are strong. This will also give us strength in the day oftrials, which is sure to come.
