Ecclesiastes Chapter 11 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.

Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.

If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.

As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.

In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike's verse

Ecclesiastes Chapter 11 (Old Testament)

Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:

But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.

Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.

10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.

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].
