More = Less *Ecc. 6:11

Plain & simple. More = less.
~~~
“The more the words,
the less the meaning,
and how does that profit anyone?”
~~~
The foolish man (human) babbles on and on, however the wise man (human) listens and holds his tongue when necessary.

A Time *Ecc. 3:1-8

A season; a time for everything. All people everywhere are the same in that everyone goes through good times and hard/bad times. Do not grow weary nor faint. The Lord God Almighty is in control over all things. Keep the faith. Ask Him for help to endure.
~~~
1 To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
2 A time to be born,
And a time to die;
A time to plant,
And a time to pluck what is planted;
3 A time to kill,
And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
And a time to build up;
4 A time to weep,
And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
And a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones,
And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
And a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to gain,
And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
And a time to throw away;
7 A time to tear,
And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
And a time to speak;
8 A time to love,
And a time to hate;
A time of war,
And a time of peace.

Contentment *Ecc. 2:17-26

We labor, we work, we play, we do what we want to do – all for what?
~~~
True happiness and contentment only comes from seeking God Most High – all else is for naught.
~~~
Only a relationship with the Lord, Jesus Messiah can give us what our souls truly desire. Only Jesus can bring peace, joy, contentment, and meaning to your life. Why not go to Him now and bring your thoughts, problems, troubles before Him. He will hear you and you will see – God is true to His Word and keeps His promises. Thanks be to God Most High – El Elyon.

Chasing *Ecclesiastes 2:10-11

So what are you chasing after? Will it last or will it perish?
~~~
All we think is good; all we want to achieve for happiness and meaning for our lives is like “chasing after the wind.” It is all good for nothing – it does not go with us when we die. The only thing good; the only thing to achieve that has worth and has everlasting value is a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This is the only thing in life that will bring contentment and pleasure and life.
~~~
If you have not experienced this, why not try it? You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
