    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 32. ORIGINAL SIN

    And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judg­ment-wickedness was there, in the place of justice- wickedness was there. I thought in my heart, “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.” Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 33. THOUGHTS FROM THE GRAVEYARD

    I also thought, “As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advan­tage over the animal. Everything is […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 25. A TIME TO LAUGH

    25. A Time to Laugh   A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain. Ecclesiastes 3:4-5   Several years ago I traveled to Russia on […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 31. HERE COMES THE JUDGE

    31. Here Comes the Judge   Whatever is has already been, and what will be has been be­fore; and God will call the past to account. Ecclesiastes 3:15   The wrath of God is a forgotten doctrine, even in the evangelical church. Part of the problem lies in our definition. When we use the word […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – Introduction

    This book is not a commentary on Ecclesiastes. It may look that way, and it may be arranged that way, but it is something else entirely. This is actually the second installment of a proposed trilogy of “wisdom books” for busy readers. Like many good ideas, this one didn’t start out according to a prede­termined […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 2. THE ULTIMATE QUESTION

    2. The Ultimate Question   What does man gain from all his labor at which he toils un­der the sun? Ecclesiastes 1:3   Solomon’s question in verse 3 begs for an answer. Mine goes like this: What you gain from your labor depends on why you are doing it. There is a huge difference be­tween […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 6. BIG GOD AND LITTLE ME

    6. Big God and Little Me   I, the Teacher, was king over Israel in Jerusalem. I devoted myself to study and to explore by wisdom all that is done un­der heaven. What a heavy burden God has laid on men! I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – Acknowledgments

    Many friends prayed for me as I neared the end of this manuscript. I am especially grateful to the members of my Wednesday night Bible class for their in­sights as we journeyed through Ecclesiastes together. I learned at least as much from them as they did from me. Special thanks to Jim Bell, Jim Vincent, […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Patriotism

    PATRIOTISM   Fear the Lord and the King   Fear the Lord and the king, my son, and do not join with the rebellious. Proverbs 24:21   It is often said that God only established three institutions-the home, the church, and the state. In so doing, He gave us explicit instructions on how all three […]

    The ABC’s of Wisdom: Building Character with Solomon – Providence

    PROVIDENCE   The lnvisible Hand of God   The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord. Proverbs 16:33   Although the term providence is not found in most modern translations of the Bible, the concept is cer­tainly biblical. It refers to “God’s gracious oversight of the universe,” which […]
