Something New Under the Sun: Wisdom for Contemporary Living

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 32. ORIGINAL SIN

March 6, 2013

And I saw something else under the sun: In the place of judg­ment-wickedness was there, in the place of justice- wickedness was there. I thought in my heart, “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.” Ecclesiastes 3:16-17 […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 33. THOUGHTS FROM THE GRAVEYARD

March 6, 2013

I also thought, “As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Man’s fate is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; man has no advan­tage over the animal. Everything is […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 34. UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

March 6, 2013

“All go to the same place; all come from dust, and to dust all return. Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” So I saw that there is nothing better for a man than to enjoy his work, because that is […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 35. BROKEN HEARTS ON EVERY CORNER

March 6, 2013

Again I looked and saw all the oppression that was taking place under the sun: I saw the tears of the oppressed-and they have no comforter; power was on the side of their op­pressors-and they have no comforter. And I declared that the dead, who had already died, are happier than the living, who are […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 36. THE RARE JEWEL OF CONTENTMENT

March 6, 2013

And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. The fool folds his hands and ruins himself. Better one handful with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. Ecclesiastes 4:4-6   Over three hundred years […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 37. ALONE AT THE TOP

March 6, 2013

Again I saw something meaningless under the sun: There was a man all alone; he had neither son nor brother. There was no end to his toil, yet his eyes were not content with his wealth. “For whom am I toiling,” he asked, “and why am I depriving myself of enjoyment?” This too is meaningless-a […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 11. MONEY, SEX AND POWER

August 6, 2012

11. Money, Sex and Power   I amassed silver and gold for myself and the treasure of kings and provinces. I acquired men and women singers, and a harem as well-the delights of the heart of man.   Ecclesiastes 2:8   Solomon had a harem, all right-seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. Historians tell […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 28. A GOD-SHAPED VACUUM

August 6, 2012

28. A God-Shaped Vacuum   He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11   Ecclesiastes 3:11 contains good news and bad news. The good news is that everything has a purpose […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 12. THE VIEW FROM THE PENTHOUSE

August 6, 2012

12. The View From the Penthouse   I became greater by far than anyone in Jerusalem before me. In all this my wisdom stayed with me.   Ecclesiastes 2:9   Here is his story, briefly told: At age six, his mother threw his birthday cake off the porch. He played the French Horn at age […]

Something New Under the Sun: Ancient Wisdom for Contemporary Living – 29. LIVING IN THE HERE AND NOW

August 6, 2012

29. Living in the Here and Now   I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil-this is the gift of God. Ecclesiastes 3:12-13   Have you ever wished you could sit […]
