I recently finished questions for reflection to help study Ecclesiastes 1-4. To review where I’ve been over the last few weeks along with a synopsis of the answers, take a look at a post at this link: God’s Way is the Best Way.
The next part of the travel will take me to Ecclesiastes 5-8. Over the next few weeks, I will continue to post about the journey and will use the questions below to help focus on each passage.
Why is religion a part of even secular man? Why should we listen to God more than we talk to Him? How do you listen to God? When? How can I stay focused on God’s presence, especially when he feels distant?
What is the difference between riches as end and as means for the Christian? Who determines our destiny? What is one area in my life where I need to stop thinking my way and start thinking God’s way?
Can any good come from experiencing tough times? What is God’s relation to prosperity and adversity? What is the purpose in each? To what extent can we solve the riddle of life by reason?
What extent has God given man the capacity to understand his situation? How is slow justice unjust? To what extent are God’s moral principles applicable for all time?
The above reading plan will be used as I share over the next few posts. It’s important to have a plan. I’m thankful that Jesus is God’s plan for us and by accepting Him as Savior; we have taken the steps necessary to make this day with Him amazing! At this link: God’s Plan for Us, is a post about accepting God’s plan or reaffirming our “YES” for Christ.
Feel free to respond with a short note or a comment about any of the questions above. Also, I welcome any other thoughts or ideas, favorite inspirational videos, photos, or favorite Bible verses. Just add them to the comments or to a Facebook page I’ve set up at this link: This Day With God.
