Ecclesiastes

I was reading Ecclesiastes the other day.  I need to say that the book is not easy to read for me, not because the words or the ideas are hard but I may need more life experience to fully comprehend the teaching.

King Solomon, the writer of Ecclesiastes is said to be the wisest person ever lived on earth (other than the Lord).  Israel was prosperous due to the success of King David. The Bible says that Solomon’s problem was disobedience to the law God has given in Deuteronomy 17:17. The power of Israel dropped dramatically in Solomon’s years. Tradition tells that he repented in his later years but it was too late for the country to rise again. His experience has become the ‘must learn’ lesson for everyone.

We all have been taught to work hard in order to have a bright future.  The King starts in his book, “Meaningless! Meaningless! Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless. What does man gain from all his labour at which he toils under the sun?” He then goes on telling the helplessness of people for they would labour without satisfaction if they don’t put the purpose of their lives right.

After all the observation, Solomon concludes, ‘Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.’ For me, this is a good lesson to start the year.
