Or Job, for that matter! Ecclesiastes is a book which seems full of despair arid struggle and death. The book is from the genre called "Wisdom Literature" in our Bible. Other portions of the Bible are know to us as the Prophets, Gospels, Epistles, etc. Ecclesiastes has many "sayings," tid- bits of wisdom or otherwise. The writer ("the Preacher") has apparently had everything and done it all. He was even king over Israel. He had worldy power and wealth. He looks over his life and declares his power, wealth, pursuits of pleasure, and even despair to be Vanity. "All is vanity and a chasing after wind!" There is much we can control and much we cannot. Ec- clesiastes observes that we toil and work in the sun and accu- mulate things, but then we die and our goods go to someone else, of whatever character. So he concludes that work is vanity. The pursuit of pleasure -"wine and folly" likewise is vanity and a chasing after wind. (We may 'chase the wind' but we never catch it! Vanity it is!) There are wise sayings, like the well-known beginning of chapter 3- "or everything there is a season..." Or 9:7 "Go, eat your bread with enjoyment, and drink your wine with a merry heart; for God has already approved what you do." 12:la "Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth..." And 12:13-14, the end of the book: "The end of the mat- ter, all has been heard. Fear God, and keep his command- ments; for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil." The book ends with a note of hope. It is a pre-Christian hope - thank God we stand today in the grace, light, and res- urrection hope of Jesus. Through him we see God; through his Spirit God is in us. And neither life nor death or hopeless or "vanity". Thanks be to God! Death Notice Richard Schreiner, age 90, Sunday evening June 5, 2011 at the Trego County Lemke Memorial Hospital Long Term Care.
