Here are two things that stand our to me about today’s reading:
1. Proverbs 31:10-31 – This is the description of a godly woman. These are special verses to Ashley and I because these are the scripture verses that are engraved in her wedding band. Ashley is a great example of these passages. She’s a wonderful wife, a loving mother and a godly woman.
2. Ecclesiastes 1-2 – This book is traditionally thought to be written by Solomon. Though I’m no biblical scholar, the beginning of this book comes across a little negative. The writer describes wisdom as meaningless. Remember, Solomon was the wisest person to ever live. So, I guest he would be the one to say whether it was worth it or not. The way I read it – it seems like Solomon is saying that you can have everything in the world (riches, wisdom, pleasures, and hard work) but without the Lord it’s all worthless. Ecclesiastes 2:25 says, “for without him, who can eat or find enjoyment?”
