Be Sensible! single message

The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes had completed his search for meaning in the endless halls of humanism. And he found nothing but futility, nothing that satisfies, and nothing of substance. With all that behind him, Solomon calmly and logically began to build a case for living life wisely instead of foolishly. If we didn’t know better, we’d be tempted to think these verses had been lifted from the book of Proverbs. In this section of his journal, Solomon wrote in maxims, one loosely connected to the next, comprising a whole chapter of contrasts…wisdom versus folly, the sensible person as opposed to the fool. The writer said, in effect, “Be sensible as you face life in all its diversity and challenge.”
