One reason I like the book of ecclesiates is that it is so truth concerning a large amount of human experience, at least my own experience. This because at the end of the day everything is vanity or meaningless from the human advantage point. When we are gone we are gone there is no more human agency, no hands on anything.
King Solomon had it all, He ordered and ate his cake. Some suggested he was worth close to 1 trillion dollars at the end of his life when he said -Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind – Ecclesiastes 12:13. I can not help see this and link to something Jesus said – Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me. Matthew 11:6
