Bible Passage: Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:8
No matter what season of life we currently experience, childhood, youth, adulthood, or old age, this passage encourages us to live joyfully. We are invited to enjoy life, but to enjoy it realistically and responsibly - to bask in the bright sun while never forgetting we dwell in the shadow of death. Because of its realism there is the accurate combination of good news and bad news, of optimism and of despair, of life and of death. This reflects life in the real world. Our experience of life is not all good, neither is it all bad. Instead it is something in-between. It is a combination of glorious beauty and unspeakable brutality and suffering. To deny either would be deceptive and unrealistic. How do we live in this environment? Solomon reminds us to look to God, to remember Him as our creator God. We look to His awesome power, His infinite knowledge, His great love.
