You Are On Earth

In Ecclesiastes the narrator is address as “Qohelet” or teacher. Solomon, the probable author, is taking on an instructor role as he tackles the meaning of life in this book. In chapter five the “teacher” gives a description on worthless ways we can worship God.

Ecclesiastes 5:1-3 says, “Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few. As a dream comes when there are many cares, so the speech of a fool when there are many words.”

There is nothing more comforting to me than to be reminded that I am human and God is God. I am on earth. God is in heaven. You may have a to-do list a mile high and a prayer list even longer. Take a deep breath. You are human and God is God. He knows. He knows.
