Ecclesiastes Chapter 6 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:

A man to whom God hath given riches, wealth, and honour, so that he wanteth nothing for his soul of all that he desireth, yet God giveth him not power to eat thereof, but a stranger eateth it: this is vanity, and it is an evil disease.

If a man beget an hundred children, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, and his soul be not filled with good, and also that he have no burial; I say, that an untimely birth is better than he.

For he cometh in with vanity, and departeth in darkness, and his name shall be covered with darkness.

Moreover he hath not seen the sun, nor known any thing: this hath more rest than the other.

Yea, though he live a thousand years twice told, yet hath he seen no good: do not all go to one place?today's verse

Ecclesiastes Chapter 6 (Old Testament)

All the labour of man is for his mouth, and yet the appetite is not filled.

For what hath the wise more than the fool? what hath the poor, that knoweth to walk before the living?

Better is the sight of the eyes than the wandering of the desire: this is also vanity and vexation of spirit.

10 That which hath been is named already, and it is known that it is man: neither may he contend with him that is mightier than he.

11 Seeing there be many things that increase vanity, what is man the better?

12 For who knoweth what is good for man in this life, all the days of his vain life which he spendeth as a shadow? for who can tell a man what shall be after him under the sun?

Ecclesiastes Chapter 6 (Old Testament)

prophetic word for today

Ecclesiastes Chapter 6: Channeling God's blessing in alignment to His wish.

Memory verse: Ecclesiastes. 6:1-2 There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men: A man to whom God has given riches and wealth and honor, so that he lacks nothing for himself of all he desires; yet God does not give him power to eat of it, but a foreigner consumes it. This is vanity, and it is an evil affliction.

It is not alien to us how swiftly riches drift people away from God, however, this doesn’t construe that rich people will not reach the kingdom of God. But to be more upfront, the earthly factors such as wealth, fulfillment, and material possession which are temporal with insatiable appetite attachment, if not well managed, would never make us utilize God’s blessing upon us for His glory.

The inception of this Ecclesiastes chapter 6 made us understand the fact that man's earthly achievements and accumulation of material possessions no matter how amassed they how much it may seem can end up

being used by a stranger who never worked for it, if we refuse to use it in tandem with God’s will.

Rather than spending our wealth on what infuriates God or accumulating material things that do not sync with what God wants, we can instead use His blessing upon our lives to bless others who are indigent in one way or the other, better still, we can impact lives by using what God has bestowed on us to reach lives that needed to be imparted.
