The wisdom of Solomon is amazing! He begins chapter 11 by giving financial advice. Invest consistently and you’ll see returns. (v.1) Diversify your investments for the best financial protection. (v.2) This is the same advice we would receive from financial experts today!
Solomon then moves to the subject of farming, and advises farmers not to wait for a perfect day to plant – those days never come. (v.4)
Solomon reminds us that as smart as we think we are, we can’t begin to understand the depths of God:
Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things. (v.5)
He concludes this chapter reminding us of how incredible life is!
How pleasant to see a new day dawning. (v.7b)
He reminds the aged to enjoy every day of life and the young to live life to the fullest.
Yet he reminds us that in all of this: life without God is meaningless.
