Ecclesiastes Chapter 11 (Old Testament)
Ecclesiastes Chapter 11: Focusing on the important things.
Memory verse: Ecclesiastes 11:4 He who observes the wind will not sow, And he who regards the clouds will not reap.
There are things – worldly beliefs that can cause fear of taking prompt action – that we need to disregard as believers. For something exceptional and palpable to happen in our lives, we also have to work toward what we want. Life is not magic or fiction. Life is real and whatever we intend to do as a person for ourselves development, as well as those that can be worthwhile to humanity, we shouldn’t let the fear of disappointment, fear, and failure hold us down.
We are not to be risk-averse – not wanting to take risks. Living life demands that we take risks. If we are afraid of taking a risk, it’s a sign that we don’t want to grow beyond our current tier at that particular point in time and that we don’t want to take responsibility. Taking responsibility makes us more focused on what we are supposed to do. We won’t wander around like a person who doesn’t have a bearing.
When we observe the wind too much – that is, when we pay keen attention to what we are not ought to pay it too – we end up not sowing, and the sowing is very essential for anyone who truly desires to reap. Fear, disappointment, and not wanting to take responsibility can make us drop the Barton of sowing well.
We ought to know that when we are in God, nothing can make us fill overwhelmed by fear any longer, and nothing can make us petrified. Because God has not given us the spirit of fear, He greatly endows us with the spirit of a sound mind to face all our fears and overcome them accordingly [ 2 Tim 1:7].
