MMS: Ecclesiastes 3:16-18

Ecclesiastes 3:16-18 Moreover, I saw under the sun that in the place of justice, even there was wickedness, and in the place of righteousness, even there was wickedness. I said in my heart, God will judge the righteous and the wicked, for there is a time for every matter and for every work. I said in my heart with regard to the children of man that God is testing them that they may see that they themselves are but beasts.

The King saw injustice, yet he did not interpret what he saw as evidence for an unjust God.

He realized that apparent injustice only proves that we are mere mortals, we do not control our fate.

In all these, he reacts by exercising faith in a just God who will, in the life to come, judge everyone accordingly.

People may see the same things, but formulate opposite conclusions. The difference lies in their presumption – in their faith.

Do you view situations with the eyes of faith in a just God, or are we attempting to steer our own destinies, having faith in no one else but ourselves?
