Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon
Completed the books of Ecclesiastes and Song of Solomon this past week and began Isaiah today. I'm not doing an in-depth study, just re-reading through the Bible. Here are a couple of things that stuck out as I read through this time. In Ecclesiastes, Solomon spends most of the book explaining why everything is meaningless. However, he ends it all with our true purpose: "Fear God and keep His commandments, For this is man's all." (Ecclesiastes 12:13) And in Song of Solomon, chapter 2 verse 4, I discovered the origin of one of my favorite childhood songs - His Banner Over Me Is Love. I've had that tune running through my head all day today!
