origin and application

The Book of Ecclesiastes, believed to be written by King Solomon, is a book that leads us to think of our order and priority in life. The writer believes that God is in control of everything. These are the beautiful verses he writes, “ There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, 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.”
The author concludes that “God will bring to judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time for every deed.”
