Every once in a while I enjoy turning to a book in my Bible and just moving from one underlined verse to another. These would be verses God has brought me before in my study or as I have listened to some teaching. It jogs my memory and is very rich. Last night I did this with the book of Ecclesiastes. Enjoy where I have been and I'm sure many of you have been in this book about life.

"under the sun"


2:13 "And I saw that wisdom excels folly as light excels darkness", that is an interesting contrast. truth.

2:25 "For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him?

3:11 "He has made everything appropriate in its time. He has also set eternity in their heart.."

4:9 One of my favorite verses -- "Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up."

5:1-2 "Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil. Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few."

5:20 "For he will not often consider the years of his life, because God keeps him occupied with the gladness of hi heart." This tells me to be content!!

7:13-14 "Consider the work of God, For who is able to straighten what He has bent? In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of adversity consider - God has made the one as well as the other so that man may not discover anything that will be after him." (his future)

10:4"If the ruler's anger rises against you, don't leave your place,
for calmness puts great offenses to rest." Man, that sounds like a great relational tip!!

11:1-2 "Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you will find it after many days. Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth."
11:5-6 "Just as you do not know the path of the wind and how bones are formed in the womb of the pregnant woman, so you do not know the activity of God who makes all things. Sow your seed in the morning and do not be idle in the evening for you do not know whether morning or evening sowing will succeed, or whether both of them alike will be good." SERVE!!!

12:13-14 "...fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. Because God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil."
