    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 – 34. UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

    “All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 11. MONEY, SEX AND POWER

    11. Money, Sex and Power   I amassed silver and gold for myself and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem as well-the delights of the heart of man.   Ecclesiastes 2:8   Solomon had a harem, all right-seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. Historians tell […]

    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 – 16. AM I WISE OR AM I FOOLISH?

    16. Am I Wise or Am I Foolish?   I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as light is better than darkness. The wise man has eyes in his head, while the fool walks in the darkness; but I came to realize that the same fate overtakes them both. Ecclesiastes 2:13-14   Sergei […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 24. TIMES AND SEASONS

    24. Times and Seasons   A time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build. Ecclesiastes 3:2-3   The meaning of the above verses is transparent: In […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 27. GRASPING AT SHADOWS

    27. Grasping at Shadows   What does the worker gain from his toil? I have seen the burden God has kid on men. Ecclesiastes 3:9-10   When the final examination grades at Cambridge University were published, Henry Martyn’s high­est ambition had been realized. He was the honors man of the year. Strangely, his first sensation […]

    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 – 8. WHAT KNOWLEDGE CAN’T DO

    8. What Knowledge Can’t Do   I thought to myself, “Look, I have grown and increased in wisdom more than anyone who has ruled over Jerusalem be­fore me; I have experienced much of wisdom and knowl­edge.” Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that […]

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

    NOBILITY   The Legacy of a Godly Wife   A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Proverbs 31:10   The final section of Proverbs is an acrostic, a poem in which each verse begins with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet. One commentator calls this “an […]

    Ebook: In His Steps

    No one who met our Lord ever stayed the same. If Christmas tells us why Jesus came, then Easter tells us he fully accomplished his mission. In between those two events we have the whole life of Christ. That’s our focus as we walk “In His Steps”, a book of 47 devotionals for the season of Lent (the period of time leading up to Easter).

    “Equipping and encouraging people to keep believing in Jesus”

    “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
