“Life goes by pretty fast. If you don’t stop to take a look around every once in a while, you might miss something.” These words from Ferris Bueller perfectly summarize Solomon’s words in Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:14. Life is short. It’s important that we seize the day while their are still days to seize.
Life can be unpredictable. Sometimes that means unexpected blessings; other times it means unexpected tragedies. We can’t always choose our circumstances but we can choose the way we respond to those circumstances. Wisdom, when intentionally pursued, can help us turn sour misfortunes into sweet blessings.
