Today we read the first chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and three chapters of Ecclesiastes.
Ephesians 1. This letter is a wonderful explanation of the Christian Gospel. Paul started out with a greeting, then explained what it means to get redemption in Christ and ended up with a prayer for spiritual wisdom.
Ecclesiastes 6. Vanity is the theme, this time the vanity of desire.
Ecclesiastes 7. There is value in practical wisdom.
Ecclesiastes 8. Obey authorities for God’s Sake, and yes, this too is in Ecclesiastes: “Eat, drink and be merry.” It fits with the theme of vanity.
