Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:16-22 | Series: Ecclesiastes: Grounded Spirituality
As the Teacher reflects on the nature of time he turns to consider the reality of judgment - that there is a time to assess all of time. But this doesn’t so much answer the question of life’s meaning as ratchet up the urgency of it - for what will we answer in time? The Teacher has the first hints of an answer - for our humanity. Given the state of the world, its probably best to live in the moment rather than be crushed by the weight of coming judgment. Unless, of course, judgment has already come. In Jesus Christ the verdict is forgiveness and the result is the restoration of our humanity.
