    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 35. BROKEN HEARTS ON EVERY CORNER

    Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed-and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their op­pressors-and they have no comforter. And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are […]

    Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 37. ALONE AT THE TOP

    Again I saw something meaningless under the sun: There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. “For whom am I toiling,” he asked, “and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?” This too is meaningless-a […]

    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 – 18. I HATED LIFE

    18. I Hated Life   So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 2:17   “Sometimes I get so lonely it’s unbelievable. Life has been so good to me. I’ve got a great wife, good […]

    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 – 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 […]

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

    SIMPLICITY   Learning to Live with Less   Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injus­tice. Proverbs 16:8   Most of us live on the opposite principle. We figure our contentment on the basis of how many of our needs are met. Unfortunately, it’s hard to reach a place where all our needs […]

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

    SLOTH   An Underestimated Sin   The sluggard buries his hand in the dish; he will not even bring it back to his mouth! Proverbs 19:24   Here is a picture both sad and silly: A grown man so lazy he won’t even lift his food to his mouth. He just bends over and buries […]

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

    SUBMISSION   How God Works Through Others   The wise in heart accept commands, but a chattering fool comes to ruin. Proverbs 10:8   Submission is one of the more difficult lessons to learn, especially when we have more wisdom than the per­son to whom we must submit. It’s not that difficult to obey a […]
