So many verses jump out at me in our Ecclesiastes passage.
Let's start with Verse 1!
1a - A good reputation is more valuable than costly perfumeSimple but true - and doesn't really need much expanding!
1b - And the day you die is better than the day you are bornSince our death ushers us into the presence of God to enjoy perfect relationship with Him forever - I say "Amen!"
It is so easy to get caught up in the moment, but living without eternity in mind is nothing but foolishness.
The praise of a fool is meaningless indeed. We would do well to accept constructive criticism from those who are wise! Tough on the pride, but good for the character.
On and on, but I'll stop there!
