kjv@Ecclesiastes:7:25@ I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:7:26@ And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:7:27@ Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account:
kjv@Ecclesiastes:7:28@ Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
kjv@Ecclesiastes:7:29@ Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
I am wondering how this works. A gift is given that destroys a man's heart, his heart to seek out a matter, his heart to proceed forward, his heart to stand firm against his oppressor, provide for his own. Sounds a lot like welfare and food stamps does it not?

Solomon has spent a great deal of time considering the ends of things. Sure they seem right to us here and now but, what of it in the end? He concludes that while somethings are better, some are wiser, all things are temporary, that they all end as vanity. Not everyone goes as far as to consider these things, the thought being "what does it matter?". It matters to the life to come and the abundant entrance ministered unto us into Christ's eternal kingdom kjv@2Peter:1:11.
