Welcome to the world— Where all is vanity.
“I said to myself, “Look, I am wiser than any of the kings who ruled in Jerusalem before me. I have greater wisdom and knowledge than any of them.” So I set out to learn everything from wisdom to madness and folly. But I learned firsthand that pursuing all this is like chasing the wind.
To increase knowledge only increases sorrow.
The greater my wisdom, the greater my grief.”
-Ecclesiastes 1:16-18 NLT
If the philosophy of man’s wisdom, is the epitome of all life’s mystery…What a wind to chase. To look past oneself into a further being, known as God, this is true wisdom. To understand one has nothing to offer that is anything new to this world [Ecclesiastes 1:9-14 NLT] . To give up oneself, to lay hold of what God can do and bring to show in through your life. This is a life that can live past history.
