Ecclesiastes 8:15 – Verse of the Day 10/1/13
This verse lies buried at the heart of the third and final section of the book of Ecclesiastes. This section opens with the question: “What advantage has a wise man over a fool?” In this verse, one advantage is that the wise person finds joy through contentment with God’s provision for each day. Life is difficult, but everyday there is still much that should lead us to rejoice.
Pray that the Lord would make you wise to appreciate the joys of everyday life. Ask the Lord not only to give you this wisdom for your own benefit, but also for the benefit of those around you. Give the Lord thanks for what He has done for you, seek contentment, and rejoice that you have a Creator and Redeemer who knows you, loves, you, and gives your life purpose and meaning.
