Ecclesiastes Chapter Twelve, The Not So Golden Years
In our study of Ecclesiastes chapter twelve, we look at the difference between growing old with faith in God and growing old without Jesus. At the end of chapter 11, we looked at the fact that our youth does not last forever. Now, we will look at the progression to what is commonly called the golden years. When most of us think of these "retirement years" we think of good times where we do what we want to do instead of going to work every day just to survive. Visions of grandchildren and permanent vacations come to mind but, as we shall see, without God they are far different.
