Read Ecclesiastes 1:1-11 Answering the cynic in me. Acknowledging God’s hand on time.

For everything there is a season:

And a time for every matter under heaven:

 

A time to be born and a time to die.

A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted.

 

A time to break down, and a time to build up.

A time to weep and a time to laugh.

 

A time to keep and a time to throw away.

A time to be silent and a time to speak.

 

A time to love and a time to hate.

A time for war and a time for peace.

 

God has made everything suitable for its time.

God has put a sense of past and future into our minds.

 

God has done this, so that all should stand in awe before him.

Whatever God does endures forever.
