Ecc1:18 “For in much wisdom is much grief; and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
First: I am reading this translation because I have to fix yet another thing on my Vista computer to dowbload another Bible to my phone. (insert irritated grrrrr here)
Second: This verse keeps popping up. Usually when I am dissappointed with my self for something. It’s funny I have prayed most of my life for wisdom, and God in HIS wisdom, has kept this verse closed to me.
Now I’m not saying that I am all wise, cause if I were I would be dissappointed with myself less, due to application of said wisdom!
Anyway-the older I get and the more I just want what God wants, the more opportunity for sorrow (and joy, of course, but that is another blog post) as I realize through hard earned wisdom and real caring-the missed opportunities, the better choices, and so on.
This isn’t a self hate or pity party, just a realization that ignorance is bliss and wisdom bringeth sorrow (due in part to the responsibility that comes with wisdome).
Yet here I am saying “Bring on the wisdom, God, cause I certainly don’t want to be a blathering idiot!” (Which, the wiser I get, I may realize that that is indeed what I am!)
