For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3: 1
The wisdom of that particular paragraph is that it helps us to step back from the moment and get perspective. As one may not be able to see the forest for the trees, unless he step back, so one could be lost in the moment during this dealing with the pandemic. However, the beauty of our text and following verses is that it gives a person the opportunity to take a step back and to realize that there is nothing better[…]than to be joyful and to do good as long as [we]live; Ecclesiastes 3: 12.
Indeed, as the rest of the chapter states, what we experience all originates in the mind of the eternal God. I perceived that whatever God does endures
forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away. Ecclesiastes 3: 14-16
In the New Testament it is worded this way: I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. Philippians 4:11
May that peace be in your hearts.
