It's Day 21 and we're in Ecclesiastes 2.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 18 - Without the hope of eternal life, there is a bitterness in knowing our only legacy is left to those who may mistreat it.
- Verse 1-26 - It's essential to understand the purpose of Ecclesiastes. It is a wise man who is not following God describing how the world seems to him. What is why it references all these wonderful things of life that the writer (almost certainly Solomon) ultimately finds "vanity" (i.e. meaningless). The point of Ecclesiastes is this: no matter how much of the wonders and glory of this earth you experience, if you don't have God in your life, you will ultimately find it meaningless. Ecclesiastes is my favorite Old Testament book because it speaks so clearly to today.
