Ecclesiastes 12:7

and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Q4. What did Jesus call death?

John 11:11-14

11 This He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I go, so that I may awaken him out of sleep.”
12 The disciples then said to Him, “Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover.”

4. Proverbs 3:27 “Don’t withhold good from someone who deserves it, when it is in your power to do so.”

5. Matthew 25:44 – 45 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn’t do anything to help you?’ Then he will answer, ‘I assure you that when you haven’t done it for one of the least of these, you haven’t done it for me.’

6. Luke 3:10-11 “The crowds asked him, ‘What then should we do?’ He answered, ‘Whoever has two shirts must share with the one who has none, and whoever has food must do the same.'”

7. Luke 6:28 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

8. Exodus 17:12 “When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.”

9. Acts 9:36 “Now there was in Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which, translated, means Dorcas. She was full of good works and acts of charity.”

10. Deuteronomy 15:11 “Poor persons will never disappear from the earth. That’s why I’m giving you this command: you must open your hand generously to your fellow Israelites, to the needy among you, and to the poor who live with you in your land.”

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

19. Ephesians 4:32 Be kind, compassionate, and forgiving to each other, in the same way God forgave you in Christ.”

8 Short Lessons from Ecclesiastes 5

8 Short Lessons from Ecclesiastes 5

8 Short Lessons from Ecclesiastes 5

1. Vs1-2, Be careful what you do when you go for worship. You are in the presence of God. Take time to listen in the house of God; don’t be talkative. Think carefully and consider before you say anything in the church because you are before God. He is greater and wiser than you, so don’t do lip service.

2. Vs3-5, Dreams are usually drawn from what we spend more time doing during the day (much activity) so be careful what you spend your time doing. Don’t be the only one talking all the time, also take time to listen to others. Talking and not listening is a sign of foolishness, so watch your words.

3. Vs 4-5, Don’t make a promise you cannot fulfill before God. If you say I will do something in God’s honor do it quickly because if you don’t, it’s foolishness and God is not happy with such acts. So please, do whatever you promise to do. It is better to keep quiet and not promise to do anything than to promise and fail.

4. Vs 6-7, Your mouth can put you in trouble and cause you to sin. Don’t be hasty to speak mostly especially, before God and His servants, and then later you come back and say, ‘it was a joke or that’s not what I wanted to say.’ So think carefully before you speak and be sure of what you are saying because God does not take it lightly what you say in His Presence. Don’t bring a curse on yourself with your own mouth. Fear God.

5. Vs 8-9, Don’t be surprised when you see corruption and oppression; there is always someone higher who watches over other leaders and another who is higher that watches over the higher one. In essence, there is always someone stronger. Know that even the mighty and powerful all benefit from the ground (the rich or powerful get their food, clothes gold, and raw materials for their cars, mansions, etc from the ground). So at last God watches over all and all benefit from what He has already made. Fear God.

6. Vs 10-12, Don’t fall into the delusion of gathering wealth and loving money, you will never be satisfied, at last, it is of no use. Riches come with their own challenges. When you work hard and you are content you have rest but when you are in a race to own it all, your abundance will take sleep and peace from you; so be careful that you don’t end up only seeing them with your eyes.

7. Vs 13-17, Don’t be selfish by hoarding riches for yourself because it will only be to your own destruction. Understand that you shall return to the grave with nothing, just as you were born with nothing. You cannot carry the wealth you have gathered with you to the grave. So what will you gain at last if you just gather without sharing? At last, there is sickness, sorrow, and anger.

8. Vs18-20, It is good to enjoy what you have from your labor. God has given us life to labor, this is our heritage, so enjoy what God has blessed you with. But remember that as God has given you riches and life to enjoy your wealth; it is a gift, not your right. So use it well, and God will keep you all the days of your life with joy in your heart. Remain Blessed.
