A man’s wisdom makes his face shine,
And the hardness of his face is changed.

I have spent some time in the book of Ecclesiastes over the years. It’s such a paradox as it appears the Author is basically saying to start off with screw life. The first chapter is not uplifting and cheery. That is where the paradox comes in though; the wisdom to deal with what that entire first chapter brings forth is contained in the Teacher’s searching. Ah yes searching, what I have discovered is that God will pursue us continually; we in turn must be willing to search for Him everywhere, and in all circumstances. It can be easy to become comfortable when life is going well and fall away from pursuing God in all situations and circumstances. It’s not always easy to seek God first, but it is most rewarding.
