In the Victories and Defeats, let us not forget God
Illusion is illusion. Spend your life working, but what’s the point of all this? We are born, we die, and nothing changes. The wind blows to the North and South without getting anywhere. Life is too hard, our eyes don’t tire of seeing nor our ears of hearing. History always repeats itself. Nothing new, everything has already happened.
The book of Ecclesiastes is by a man who, even looking at his victories and defeats, with his pessimism and optimism, his hope and despair, God is not forgotten. We will have to answer to God for all that we live, to what is done in secret, whether good or evil.
The conclusion of the book of Ecclesiastes says rightly: “end of the speech, heard all things: fear God and observe his commandments, this is what it is up to each human being. About all the things you do, God will call in mind all that is hidden, whether good or evil “(Ecl -14 12.13).These are the last two verses of the book of Ecclesiastes, and if we meditate on the entire book, we will see be a copy for our life.
