Ecclesiastes 3 part 1

The third chapter of this book make very interesting reading. As I read it through the other day I reflected on how the apparent contradictions have reflected during my life and indeed through many other peoples.

A time to be born and a time to die – obviously I’ve only experienced the first part so far but I thank God that I’ve lived through a period of relatively prosperity for my country.

A time to plant and a time to uproot – fifteen years ago I felt God’s strong prompting to uproot from where I lived to move to a completely another part of the country. I thank Him daily for such an uprooting.

A time to kill and a time to heal – a difficult one this. Maybe a time to kill off my bad habits and sins. A time to grow good habits.

So much wisdom in a few words.
