The Preacher of Ecclesiastes continues to shake his fist at God’s sovereignty. Looking to the one who made a season for everything under the sun, the Preacher scoffs at God insinuating that He forgot about a season of Justice. He looked to the courts and the temple and found wickedness–not justice. He accuses man of being no better than a beast and comes to this conclusion–there is no hope, so seize the day and any happiness you can find.
However, as disciples of Jesus, we know that there is so much more than what we see on earth. Our transcendent God has created us in his image, and with eternal life. Justice is coming and will be fulfilled in ENTERNITY.
As we look beyond the sun, we live our lives seeking to bring justice to the oppressed and yet yielding injustice done to us to God. We live today, looking to eternity.
