Wisdom for the New Year
Ecclesiastes 1:1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Ecclesiastes 7:8 The end of a matter is better than its beginning;
Patience of spirit is better than haughtiness of spirit.
What the teacher wants to teach us about is Time and Time’s Passing.
The conclusion of everything is just as inevitable as its beginning.
Look at the temporal nature of all things.
The conclusion of anything is more important than its beginning.
Look at what is truly important.
The conclusion of some things is more important than continuing.
Look for what is really working.
