Last year taught us many valuable and harsh lessons. One of them could have been not to put our hope in only one thing, because that could be snatched from us at any time. The old saying goes something like this: "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." This usually applies to financial decisions, but it can apply to a lot of other things too.
Coming back to the wisdom of Solomon in Ecclesiastes, we note a similar sentiment from him.
"Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you.
2 But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead." - Ecclesiastes 11:1
For me, these words of wisdom speak about a few key things:
1. We need to work hard and in time we will hopefully be rewarded.
2. Dividing your "investments" in a few options is very wise
3. Risks and uncertainty lie in the future
4. Security for the future relies of wise decisions in the present and the trust in God's provision for the present.
May God bless you with the wisdom of Solomon as you begin this new year.
Challenges lies ahead, but God is with us.
