Let’s read Ecc 4:1-16

Again I saw all the oppressions that are done under the sun. And behold, the tears of the oppressed, and they had no one to comfort them! On the side of their oppressors there was power, and there was no one to comfort them.

A Time for Everything (Ecc. 3:1-11)

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11 For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.

What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.

If you’re like that, that’s fine. Far from me to break your momentum… But maybe you are thinking, “Oh no another school year. The same old routine, the same journey every morning in traffic jams, or on the bus. Another job that tires me out. More housework to be done, diapers to change, meals to prepare. “Always a hassle.” Another full schedule, too full.
