I recently finished questions for reflection to help study Ecclesiastes 5-8. 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: answers as we step ahead.
The next part of the travel will take me to Ecclesiastes 9-12. 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.
How does the sovereignty of God lend meaning to your life? Characterize your sense of urgency about your mission in life.
What inclination of the heart is related to your ability to resist evil? What is recommended when we are confronted with evil in high places? Why? Contrast the manner of a wise man and a fool. What are your responsibilities in balancing talk and action?
To what extent do you act out of love, without concern for return? Why? In what areas should you apply caution before taking a risk? What is the danger inherent in delaying generosity?
Have you resolved to follow God? Why or Why not? List your own and the author’s conclusions about wisdom.
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.
