I, the Preacher, have been king over Israel in Jerusalem. And I applied myself by heart and mind to seek and search out by human wisdom all human activity under heaven.
It is a miserable business which the Almighty has given to the sons of man with which to busy themselves. I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity, a striving after the wind and a feeding on wind.
What is crooked cannot be made straight, and what is defective and lacking cannot be counted.
I entered into counsel with my own mind, saying, Behold, I have acquired great [human] wisdom, yes, more than all who have been over Jerusalem before me; and my mind has had great experience of [moral] wisdom and [scientific] knowledge.
And I gave my mind to know [practical] wisdom and to discern [the character of] madness and folly [in which men seem to find satisfaction]; I perceived that this also is a searching after wind and a feeding on it. [1Th 5:21] For in much [human] wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.
Thus goes the cry of that loving voice for today. Did it hit me? Big time!
I am ready for that voice to continue expounding to me the fact and reality about this thing I have called ‘life’.
Perhaps tomorrow? That voice shall continue.
- Yes, I am ready to hear, ready to be instructed.
- Ready to find my way out of this multitude wilderness.
- Ready to find out how I am loved so I can love.
What about you, Dear Unique Human?
Much love, thiaBasilia. 🙂
