Comment: Read the book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible.

(See in situ)


Read the book of Ecclesiastes in the Bible.

This book was written by King Solomon in the last years of his life. He was reputed to be the wisest man who ever lived (apart from the Lord Jesus Christ Himself who is Wisdom incarnate and was the One who gave Solomon his wisdom).

Example:

"So I turned to consider wisdom and madness and folly. For what can the man do who comes after the king? Only what has already been done. Then I saw that there is more gain in wisdom than in folly, as there is more gain in light than in darkness.

The wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the same event happens to all of them. Then I said in my heart, What happens to the fool will happen to me also. Why then have I been so very wise? And I said in my heart that this also is vanity. For of the wise as of the fool there is no enduring remembrance, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. How the wise dies just like the fool!

So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and a striving after wind."

Reading this is a perfect antidote for your present condition. Read it all and it will lead you out of where you are into another place where you have never been before.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
