    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 – 36. THE RARE JEWEL OF CONTENTMENT

    And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. The fool folds his hands and ruins himself. Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:4-6   Over three hundred years […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 14. SO WHAT?

    14. So What?   Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun. Ecclesiastes 2:11   You would think Solomon would be happy. After all, he had it all-money, fame, power, a vast […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 15. THE TURTLE ON THE FENCE POST

    15. The Turtle on the Fence post   Then I turned my thoughts to consider wisdom, and also madness and folly. What more can the king’s successor do than what has already been done? Ecclesiastes 2:12   I’m sure Solomon felt pressure from both sides on the issue of kingly succession. On the one hand […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 19. PASSING THE BATON

    19. Passing the Baton   I hated all the things I had toiled for under the sun, because I must leave them to the one who comes after me. And who knows whether he will be a wise man or a fool? Yet he will have control over all the work into which I have […]

    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 – 29. LIVING IN THE HERE AND NOW

    29. Living in the Here and Now   I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil-this is the gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:12-13   Have you ever wished you could sit […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 30. NOTHING LEFT BUT GOD

    30. Nothing Left But God   I know that everything God does will endure forever; noth­ing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it, so men will revere him. Ecclesiastes 3:14   I believe that God orchestrates the affairs of life-both the good and the bad-to bring us to the […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 9. EAT DESSERT FIRST

    9. Eat Dessert First   I thought in my heart, “Come now, I will test you with plea­sure to find out what is good.” But that also proved to be meaningless. “Laughter,” I said, “is foolish. And what does pleasure accomplish?” I tried cheering myself with wine, and embracing folly-my mind still guiding me with […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 10. THE MAN WHO HAD IT ALL

    10. The Man Who Had It All   I undertook great projects: I built houses for myself and planted vineyards. I made gardens and parks and planted all kinds of fruit trees in them. I made reservoirs to water groves of flourishing trees. I bought male and female slaves and had other slaves who were […]
