Day 171

Today’s Reading – Ecclesiastes Chapters 7-12

Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.
Ecclesiastes 12:13
Remember growing up how hard it was to listen to your parents?

It seemed they were always saying, “When I was a kid . . . ”

We need to listen to Solomon with adult ears.

Solomon has been there and done that as a child and as an adult.

His words of wisdom come from experience and should not be casually tossed aside.

As you age, you realize how wise your parents were.

Don’t make the same mistake with Solomon’s advice.



I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
