“I have seen everything that is done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind.” Ecclesiastes 1:14

My homework for our ladies Bible study had me in Genesis 2 and 3 this morning.  I’ll take Genesis any day over Ecclesiastes.  I never know what to do with Ecclesiastes.  Genesis is just so PURPOSEFUL.  Every single element of creation intentionally placed to play its part in the great drama of redemption.  Types and shadows of the coming Messiah, the last Adam and the bride He purchases for Himself, the Sabbath rest that is to come, the New Heavens and Earth where we, clothed in Christ’s righteousness, will dwell securely— these just seem to jump from the page at me.

So it was a reluctant leap for me this afternoon from the loftiness of Genesis into the murky waters of Ecclesiastes.
