vs.1 God's plan is that everything has a "season" and purpose. A reason to live. A reason to die. We are no different from His everything. We are his children. If he has a purpose for all that he created, how could we not believe he has a purpose for us. We only have no purpose when we choose to not believe in the higher love.vs. 2 .God's plan is that everything he created (nature) (man) has a time (season) to be born and to die. Look at the life span of butterfly, a bird, a cricket, a flower, a shaft of wheat. Within each of these creations lies an inward clock that brings... tells them what, when and where to be. Where is man's clock? I believe we all have one, but God has given us agency. So man (because he is a child of God) must learn to use his own time with wisdom.vs 3 ... the cycle of creation, the cycle of life. the cycle of existence on this earth. We kill for food. We break down what God has given us so that we can have food, shelter, and clothing.vs. 4 The cycle of emotion. .. It is important to feel all of these emotion. We cannot appreciate one without the other. Each emotion has a purpose. Each emotion has a reason it is in our life. Too much anxiety means our life is out of balance. Even joy can bring us to the realization of what we need to do to continue to progress.vs 5 the cycle of forgiving... cast away the stones that seperate.. gather the stones to build a community of acceptance. Embrace those you forgive. Learn to let go those that will not be forgiven.vs 6 the cycle of acquiring - sorting.. what is of value? What do we truly need? What can we take with us?vs 7. the cycle of communication - we all make mistakes. When we have been wronged we need to know when the time is right to tear open the truth... when should we mend our relationships? How do we do this? through silence or through speech?vs 9.. Solomon is now asking us about how time enters into the equation of profit? He wants us to understand that there is no profit in a never ending cycle of time and season that measures our existence here on earth. The only profit comes....vs 11... when God makes everything beautiful... in his time...God is in control of the earth. God is in control of our lives. God is in control. We need only to accept Him and realize that our understanding of eternity (in relation to the marked time here on earth) is the beginning of our understanding of God's wisdom.vs 13 It is the gift of God.. to eat and enjoy the goodness of his labor well spent. We all have a need to spend our time wisely. To bring something meet for reward to our Father in Heaven when our time is ended.
va 14. Whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever. - God is eternal. God is spiritual. God does not end. All that he does is an eternal round.vs 16-17 wickedness (not knowing God) and righteousness(acknowledging God) will be judged.. Why? Because God designed a purpose. If we all have purpose, God will want to see if we met our purpose. Think of a flower blooming. Sometimes I plant a seed and it does not sprout. It does not mature. Why? God will want to know why we didn't sprout? Why we didn't bloom.vs 18-19 the aestate of the sons of men, - affairs of men. .. We are but beasts who must adhere to the cycles of life. birth, death, sleep, growth,. We came from dust. We, like the beasts will return to dust.vs 21-22. Solomon knows that we will return upward, but he asks the question?
