Ecclesiastes 4:1-6:12, 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:7, Psalms 47:1-9, Proverbs 22:16
Today is the 3rd day of September welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it is great to be here with you as we greet the close of another one of our weeks. So, we’re closing a week and we’re just getting started and moved into this brand-new month. So well have to wait until next week for the first full week of this month of September but this is where we are, and this is how the days fall and its wonderful. No matter what day it is, no matter where we are in the month, it is wonderful to be around the Global Campfire together with you as we take the next step forward. And that next step leads us back into the book of Ecclesiastes. And we talked quite a bit about Ecclesiastes yesterday, that it is a part of the grouping of wisdom literature in the Bible and that it gives this really unique perspective from a person who has had no limits, no limits to their resource, no limits to their desire, no limits to their ambition and has done it all. And what you do if you’ve done it all and you can’t think of anything left to do but you are now older and your life reflecting back? And of course, this isn’t all there is to Ecclesiastes but this gives us sort of a birds eye view of what we’re moving through as we continue our journey. And, so, let’s dive in. We’ve been reading from the English Standard Version this week, which is what we’ll do today. Ecclesiastes chapter 4, 5, and 6.
Father, we thank You for Your word. We thank You for this brand-new month. It’s flying by. But as we mark the days and mark the time it allows us to stay present in where we are and what You are doing in our lives. We are grateful for the territory that we are moving through in the Bible and we recognize now that we moved through several different kinds of territory that we see that it speaks to us in different ways, touches us in different ways, transforms us and invites us deeper. We are grateful and we are looking forward to all that You have to impart, all that You have to teach us in the Scriptures in this month. So, come Holy Spirit. We seal this week. We release it to You. It will become part of our past. It will become history and we will look forward to all that is laying in store for us as we live our days in community and walk in this life of faith with You. Come Holy Spirit we pray. In the name of Jesus we ask. Amen.
