A Time for Everything

Ecclesiastes

violet star A Time for Everything

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace. ( NIV ) violet star violet star gold star

Eccl 3: 1 - 8

Purple star All humans are put to the test

I also thought , " As for men, God tests them so that they may see that they are like animals. Man's fate is like that of animals ; the same fate awaits them both : As one dies , so dies the other. All have the same breath ; man has no advantage over the animal. Everything is meaningless. All go to the same place ; all come from dust , and to dust all return. ( NIV ) brown star
