Ecclesiastes 3:12 – Verse of the Day 8/22/13
This section of Ecclesiastes focuses upon God’s work as creator and judge (3:9-21). God’s wisdom is infinite, and he has a purpose in all things. For the author of Ecclesiastes, God’s wondrous work as creator should elicit a reverent response from his creation. The wise response to the wonder of creation is to recognize our creator and praise Him with joy.
Spend some time in prayer praising God for the wonderful creation that He has designed and brought into being. Ask the Lord to help you to be faithful to your calling in this creation, and to discern the particular gifts that God has given you for carrying out that calling. Thank the Lord for making Himself known to you and giving you purpose.
