Ecclesiastes 3: Seasons & Times
The seasons come and the seasons go; everything in life just seems to come at us, to happen to us without our permission. What does this tell us about wisdom? Our seasons can teach us. They can stretch us and they can leave us with uncertainty. Sometimes our seasons are painful. Life comes and life goes, so what are we to do? In Ecclesiastes 3, Koheleth tells us that God has "set eternity in our hearts," even though it seems like nothing in life lasts; it comes and it goes. Let's listen close to what God is teaching us about wisdom in the midst of our seasons.
