When Karl Barth was once asked how he would summarise all the countless words he had published, he replied,
"Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so." The simplicity of his statement is astounding when you consider the length of the volumes that he wrote.
If you were to write a conclusion to your collection of wise words how would you begin? What words would you want to impart as your lasting legacy. In his writings to the younger generation, Solomon concludes all of his rhetoric with these two lines:
