My Verse Of The Year-Time And Chance Happen To Them All(Ecclesiastes 9:11)

…and it reads…
“I have seen something else under the sun:the race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong,nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned;BUT TIME AND CHANCE HAPPEN TO THEM ALL.”

Wow!Amazing isn’t it?Well,I’m not an avid reader of The Bible but I occasionally flip through the pages in the chilling mornings when I’m just about to study.

From this verse,it is evident that some things just happen.It matters not whether you’re rich,educated,strong,ill,poor, or whatever condition.

Time and chance play a part in our lives.This explains why bizarre things happen to some people and at times we can’t explain why.For instance,the rich at one time may prosper while at another time,die mysteriously.

This is however opposed greatly to the book of Proverbs,which denotes that we get what we work for and that good character meets with positive reward.

Even the good meet with frustration,disappointment and death.
