Ecclesiates (meaningless life?) 90 Day Challenge continuesBible Reading Challenge
The other day as I mentioned to a friend that we just completed reading through the book of Ecclesiastes, She said, in jest, “Oh, I do not like that book.” I laughed and said, “I didn’t think it was very encouraging to Jeremy, either.” She went on to say, “I see verses like “everything you do, put your whole heart into it,” etc.” and she feels the pressure of it. I said, “that’s funny, because I see the book as very encouraging.” ” I see it saying that this life is so short and so meaningless that we need to just remember the big picture is to live a life for God.” “Don’t sweat the small stuff.” Do your best and trust God to show you His way.
Here are a few verse that really spoke to me in Ecclesiastes:
There is no remembrance of people of old, and even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow them. Eccl. 1:11
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: Eccl. 4:9
A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance Eccl. 3:4
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of every human being. Eccl. 12:13
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Eccl. 3:11
Just an added note, as we have been reading through the Bible we have also enjoyed watching these videos. They are fun, cute, children’s Bible commentary video’s. Like any commentary they are from the writer’s perspective. But we really enjoy them. What’s in the Bible with Buck Denver

Things to know as you visit our site
We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.
