He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so,
people cannot see the whole scope of God’s workfrom beginning to end.
When times are good, be happy;
but when times are bad, consider:
God has made the one
as well as the other.
The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.
As goods increase,
so do those who consume them.
And what benefit are they to the owner
except to feast his eyes on them?
Ecclesiastes 3: 11
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men.
