Reflection Guide – Ecclesiastes 9:13-11:7

DOWNLOAD:  Reflection Guide Ecc 9.13-11.7

He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap.  Ecc 10:4

I am afraid to fail.  I am afraid what people will say.  I am afraid of how the opinions of others will make me feel.  So my personal, self-made wisdom tells me that is always wise to never really set goals, play it safe, attempt only what is easy and avoid risk.

Not only is this a recipe for a very boring, minimally fruitful and unsatisfying life, my wise and safe behavior is an affront to God and a bold-face rejection of the assurances that come to us in the gospel.  As you listen and reflect on this message this week, you will be challenged to confront fear, laziness, and apathy in your pursuit of obedience to God and being the husband, wife, mom, dad, son, daughter or student that is “worthy of the gospel”.  You will also be encouraged to take comfort in Christ and trust him more.  May God help us by His grace!
