DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING FOR GRANTED
Ecclesiastes 6:10, 7:3,14,18,20, 9:17, 10:8 MSG
10 Whatever happens, happens. Its destiny is fixed.
You can’t argue with fate.
3 Crying is better than laughing.
It blotches the face but it scours the heart.
14 On a good day, enjoy yourself;
On a bad day, examine your conscience.
God arranges for both kinds of days
So that we won’t take anything for granted.
18 It’s best to stay in touch with both sides of an issue. A person who fears God deals responsibly with all of reality, not just a piece of it.
20 There’s not one totally good person on earth,
Not one who is truly pure and sinless.
17 The quiet words of the wise are more effective
Than the ranting of a king of fools.
18 A shiftless man lives in a tumbledown shack;
A lazy woman ends up with a leaky roof.
