Ecclesiastes (4)

The verses in our Bible Reading today are very familiar to many people. In the 1960s a popular American folk song was based on these verses. Verse 1 says, “There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time.”
It is very important that we recognize that God is in control of the universe. From the time we are born until the time we die, God has a plan for our lives. We don’t always understand what God is doing, but we still need to trust and depend on Him.
These verses remind us that we will face many things in life. Some of these things are birth, death, crying, laughter, sadness, joy, love, hatred, keeping things, throwing away things, war and peace. As we face these things, we need to allow God to work in our lives. Then our lives will have meaning and purpose.
