We have finally reached the end of the book of Ecclesiastes. Now the writer tells us what we want to know. He tells us what is most important in life.
Throughout the whole book, the writer of Ecclesiastes has looked at wealth, success and other things in life. Now he closes with Ecclesiastes 12:13-14. “Now, what should we learn from everything that is written in this book? The most important thing a person can do is to respect God and obey his commands, because he knows everything people do — even the secret things. He knows about all the good and all the bad, and he will judge people for everything they do.” The writer does not say that we should try to get more wealth, wisdom or success. He says that we should respect and obey God!
If we respect God, we will pay attention to His Word and obey it. When we 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 many years ago, they still have important messages for us today. May God bless you as you respect and obey Him!
