Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom.

I have observed something else in this world of ours. The fastest runner doesn’t always win the race, and the strongest warrior doesn’t always win the battle. The wise are often poor, and the skillful are not necessarily wealthy. And those who are educated don’t always lead successful lives. It is all decided by chance, by being at the right place at the right time.

People can never predict when hard times might come. Like fish in a net or birds in a snare, people are often caught by sudden tragedy.

[Ecclesiastes 9:10-11]

We live in an unpredictable world. Because sin is what controls this world, because we each make our own choices, which lead to our own consequences, we must realize we live in the world which has been destroyed, it is no longer the way God intended. But God uses these failures, and consequences to teach us. God’s nature is for us to be with him, but because of sin we are separated from him. There is an opposing force, which we must fight. Pray continually for God’s plan, wisdom, and power to overcome, our prayers empower God’s Holy Spirit to continue the good fight. God has a plan to restore the world to his original plans. God wants us to truly love him though, so he has given us the choice, we can take it or leave it. One day every person will confess he is God, and one day every knee will bow, can you imagine? God has already one the battle, we just need to fight our own. This life is not fair, bad things happen to good people ? but we have something which Satan does not, we have everlasting life.
