Ecclesiastes 7:13-14 Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which he hath made crooked? (14) In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider: God also hath set the one over against the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him.
This watercolor painting is called "Day Is Done." While I was going through my art and photos, I came across my painting and thought...this painting was painted with peace in mind...a good feeling of accomplishment, yet tired, the Amish father walks with his young son in the final light of the day with a sense of joy, which he shares with his young one, guiding and teaching him the value of a good hardworking day and demonstrating some of the values needed for growing into a man who serves the Lord. Whether prosperity or adversity, find a sense of joy in both...our God is in control.
Ecclesiastes is a very good book to read in the Bible. The word "Ecclesiastes" means "preacher" which also means "teacher." King Solomon wrote this book with "teaching" in mind. If you get a chance, take a look at some of the words of wisdom he writes about in this book.
