The writer of Ecclesiastes reminds us that there is really nothing new in life. He talks about this in Ecclesiastes 1:9. “All things continue the way they have been since the beginning. The same things will be done that have always been done. There is nothing new in this life.” The writer also explains that the sun comes up in the east and sets in the west every day. The wind blows from the south and then the north. And the rivers of the world flow into the oceans.
People don’t really change either. You may watch the news on TV and think that the things happening in the world are worse than ever. But people are still doing the same sins they have been doing for thousands of years.
It may make you sad to think that things in the world are not getting better. But there is good news! The Bible tells us that Jesus never changes. He is the same today as He was yesterday. And Jesus will be the same tomorrow. That means He will always be our Lord and Savior.
When you notice the bad things that are happening in the world today, remember that you can depend on Jesus. He is always ready to share His love and peace with you.
