The Injustices of Life
Today's Passage: Ecclesiastes 3:16-22
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Invite God to join you in your reading. Ask Him for wisdom.
If there is anything in your spirit hindering you, confess it now.
He knows it. You are forgiven.
Ask Him to help you embrace that truth to live it out.
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you, Omnipotent God for insight.
Read and summarize each verse into as few
words as you can. Goal 1 or 2 words.
16. I also noticed that under the sun there is evil in the courtroom. Yes, even the courts of law are corrupt!
17. I said to myself, "In due season God will judge everyone, both good and bad, for all their deeds."
18. I also thought about the human condition —how God proves to people that they are like animals.
19. For people and animals share the same fate — both breathe and both must die. So people have no real advantage over the animals. How meaningless!
20. Both go to the same place — they came from dust and they return to dust.
21. or who can prove that the human spirit goes up and the spirit of animals goes down into the earth?
22. So I saw that there is nothing better for people than to be happy in their work.That is why we are here! No one will bring us back from death to enjoy life after we die.
Ecclesiastes 3:16-22 NLT
