Ecclesiastes (10)

We are finally at the end of Ecclesiastes, and now the writer tells us what is most important in life.
Throughout the book, the writer has looked at wealth, wisdom, success and other things in life. Now he concludes that, “The most important thing a person can do is to respect God and obey his commands” (verse 13b). He does not say that we should try to have more wealth, wisdom or success. The writer says that we should respect and obey God.
If we respect God, we will pay attention to His Word, the Bible, and obey it. When we read and study the Bible, we learn more about God and how we can follow Him.
I hope that you have learned some good lessons from the verses we studied in Ecclesiastes. Even though these verses were written a long time ago, they still have important messages for us today. May God bless you as you respect and obey Him!
