Welcome back as we are continuing from June 1, 3, 5, 2020. Now, June 9, 11, 15, 17, 19, 2020 let's continue and conclude our 'chapter sections' of posts from the 'Working' OUTLINE for 'Ecclesiastes'. For the purpose for you to review, the dates of each of the sections are posted for you.
Remember, we will not be doing a 'chapter-by-chapter' post series, but, we will be posting 'sections' even over-lapping in chapters, to keep the 'thoughts' together, as we go through our posts for verbatim reading.
With these posts, June 19, 2020, we will pause to review before posting further during the week of June 29-July 1, 2020, 'Song of Solomon', as the Lord wills. Amen. Amen.

All things under the sun are vanity. June 19, 2020 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Ecclesiastes Chapter 11:1-10 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Exhortation to liberality. (1-6) An admonition to prepare for death, and to young persons to be religious. (7-10)
Chapter 11:1 'Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
2 Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
3 If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
4 He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
5 As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.'
7 'Truly the light is sweet, and a pleasant thing it is for the eyes to behold the sun:
8 But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many. All that cometh is vanity.
9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
10 Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from thy flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity.'
My friends. Every person must labor to be a blessing to that place where the providence of God casts him or her. Wherever we are, we may find good work to do, if we have but hearts to do it. Let me repeat that.
Wherever we are, we may find good work to do, if we have but hearts to do it. If we magnify every little difficulty, start objections, and fancy hardships, riot and tear down, be ungrateful, and grossly disrespectful, then we shall never go on, much less go through with our work. Thus, where we are, today!
Winds and clouds of tribulation are, in God's hands, designed to try us. God's work shall agree with his word, whether we see it or not. And we may well trust God to provide for us, without our anxious, disquieting cares, fits of bitterness and rages, living in the past which can never be changed, etc.
Be not weary in well-doing, for in due season, in God's time, you shall reap, Galatians 6:9. Amen. Amen.
Thank you, my friends for returning this afternoon for the conclusion of the Book of Ecclesiastes with Chapter 12 of this section in our outline, audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html. Amen. Amen.
