Ecclesiastes 1:17-18 (KJV)

17. And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.

18. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

The more you understand, the more pain and difficulty you will experience. Ex: the more you know, the more imperfection you will see around you; and the more you observe, the more evil becomes evident.

When seeking wisdom, we see in the book of Ecclesiastes there are two kinds of wisdom: (1) human knowledge, reasoning, or philosophy, and (2) the wisdom that comes from God.

Solomon talks about human knowledge and how it ignores God. As a result human knowledge only highlights our problems because it can’t provide answers without God’s eternal perspective and solution.

Through our relationship to God through Jesus Christ, we CAN actually do things that last for ETERNITY We can find both significance and security in Him, the two greatest needs of a meaningful life.

Be blessed in all you do!!
