Today’s Bible Book is Ecclesiastes.

What is the main message of Ecclesiastes?People should enjoy, but should not be greedy; no-one knows what is good for humanity; righteousness and wisdom escape us. Kohelet reflects on the limits of human power: all people face death, and death is better than life, but we should enjoy life when we can.

What can we learn from Ecclesiastes?The book of Ecclesiastes highlights the emptiness of trying to be happy apart from God. I believe it is human to worry about the future. It is human to thrive to be rich, we find ourselves sometimes engulfed in an endless pursuit of wealth, possession, and power.

3:11-15 Every thing is as God made it; not as it appears to us. We have the world so much in our hearts, are so taken up with thoughts and cares of worldly things, that we have neither time nor spirit to see God’s hand in them. … Source: Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in its time.
