Gathering in Christ
There is an evil in all that is done under the sun; that one thing happens to all. Truly the hearts of the sons of men are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead. But for him who is joined to all the living there is hope for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
It is a haphazard life, and we have to bank on God’s wisdom, not on our own… A Bohemian is careless about everything, and neither Jesus Christ nor Solomon teaches that. Jesus Christ taught that a man is to be carefully careless about everything except his relationship to God. The great care of the life, Jesus says, is to make the relationship to God the one care. Most of us are careful about everything except that.
