wise, crazy, or stupid?

IMG_0152Ecclesiastes 2:12-17

The Preacher’s second experiment was to focus on making himself a wiser man.  He considered three options: being wise, being crazy, or being stupid.  Part of learning wisdom is the acceptance that even it made no difference in terms of his inevitable outcome.  The grave awaits all three types of man.  So, just as accomplishment was – in the end – not significant enough to give his life meaning, neither was wisdom.  Even seeking wisdom was striving after the wind.

LORD, protect us from the deceit that life is about how wise we can become.  Life is about our relationship with you.
