Time and chance…..

November 14, 2008

I returned and saw under the sun that—

      The race is not to the swift,
      Nor the battle to the strong,
      Nor bread to the wise,
      Nor riches to men of understanding,
      Nor favor to men of skill;
      But time and chance happen to them all.

King Solomon

Eccleciastes 9:11



  1. We are quite certain that Solomon wrote Eccleciastes, but he never tells us it’s him. This was written when he was a bitter old man. Everything in this book has to be taken with a grain of salt. The Preacher isn’t being a good example in this book, he has become a terrible warning.

  2. I look at his life and I say what would have happened if he had never turned away? And then I look at my life and say the same.

  3. Solomon was given great wisdom by God. Although sadly he did not himself live his life out in that wisdom, that does not take away from his writings.
