The Most Important Thing

For those in the northern hemisphere, it’s autumn.  Night comes in the late afternoon.   Find some quiet time in the evening…light a candle….have a cup of hot cider or hot chocolate and slowly read the passages for today with your family.

The Book of Ecclesiastes doesn’t have much emotion in it; rather it offers wise sayings and thoughts about wisdom to be pondered slowly.  Throughout the book, this phrase often appears: “Everything is pointless.”  While this isn’t a very optimistic outlook on life, the writer does invite to do only what is important and not do what is only a waste of time.   

The most important thing in life is to love….everything else is pointless!

Ecclesiastes 9:13-18; 11:1-10
