Again, the same old thing

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

(Ecclesiastes 1:9)

Man never learns. It’s the same old thing each generation that comes and goes.

Wars again, greed again, dictators again, murders again, materialism again, idol worship again, same mistakes again … evil again. I’m reminded of the Book of Judges, where we read many times during those hundreds of years, “And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord”. Again. They were ok for a season, but really they never learned. It was only a matter of time before they returned back to their vomit again.

Thank God that through all of the rubbish man does and gets himself into that God never changes. His inspired and preserved word never changes. By His grace, when I awake each morning He is exactly the same this new day as He was the previous night.

The world is an uncertain place. Let’s not look at it and get discouraged and afraid as the lost do, who have no hope. Let’s keep our eyes on our Joy, our Peace, our Comfort, our immutable God and Saviour.
