Wisdom for life is best given at the end of one’s life. With age comes experience and with experience comes wisdom. Hence the value of the book of Ecclesiastes. Writing about life as his own came to a close, Solomon expresses the virtues of a life well-spent and the vanity of a life wasted.
Last week I was given the opportunity to give a devotional to the lower level of my dorm here at Faith Baptist Bible College. During my time here at school, I have really been challenged with the importance of using time wisely and redeeming it as Paul exhorted Christians to do in Ephesians 5:15-16. So the topic of my devo last week was using time wisely, and my text was Ecclesiastes 12:9-14. After studying the passage and talking about it to the guys here, I was challenged to read through the book of Ecclesiastes for my daily devotions.
So that is what I am doing. I don’t know how long it will take, but I plan to go through it at the speed at which I can get the most out of it. So here it goes: The Book of Ecclesiastes.
