In today’s reading, I don’t want anyone to think I am ignoring the last few chapters of Luke. They are some of the most important passages of our faith. But since we started reading the book of Ecclesiastes, I have really enjoyed it. In chapter 5, verse 18 stood out to me, This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. In other words, we must be content in all God has blessed us with; whether it is great or small. We must always have the right perspective in knowing all our possessions belong to God and it is a privilege to be stewards of it while we are here on earth. The notes in my Bible say it best “We must focus more on the Giver than the gift.”
