ECCLESIASTES 4:1-6 :: YouVersion Event

In chapter 3, Solomon’s perspective “under the sun” was that there is no justice in the courthouse and no righteousness in the church house. In chapter 4, begins with “everything is hopeless.”

In this [fourth] chapter, “The Preacher” deals with four areas of life he observes that reinforce his view that all is enigmatic:

1. oppression (vv. 1-3),
2. rivalry as the motivation for work (vv. 4-6),
3. isolation in work and life [lack of community] (vv. 7-12),
4. the problem of government (vv. 13-16).

❖ Tonight, as we begin chapter 4, we are confronted with “gloom and doom.”

Mother’s Day — 2020 :: YouVersion Event

Mother’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate motherhood. To have a godly mother is to give a child an influence that will be cherished throughout a lifetime. However, giving birth to a child and being a godly mother are two, totally, separate things. The “June Cleaver” idealism is unrealistic. Being a mother is a daily challenge, is hard, valuable, work while in the midst of spiritual warfare. Being a mother means that there are many unseen sacrifices and struggles, but, are seen and valued by the Lord. Mothers, too often are undervalued, misunderstood and looked over by a culture that applauds outward and visible contributions to society. So a mother’s work is hidden away in the unseen moments of grace with her children. Too often, mothers perceive they are unappreciated and question their effectiveness in their family. Mother’s Day is a time for us to set aside a day and say…

“We love you, respect you, and honor you for who you are and all that you do!”


In honor of Mother’s Day, we will focus upon the mothers mentioned, or implied, in Heb. 11:

Happy Mother’s Day

Looking Up
Saturday, May 09, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

If anyone had reason to quit serving God, we would think it was Paul. His powerful and faithful witness brought many to faith in Christ, but it also brought much opposition and persecution. Paul was beaten, stoned, shipwrecked, imprisoned, slandered, and hated. None of that happened because he was doing wrong. The persecution came because he was doing right. Yet in all that he endured, Paul refused to stop proclaiming the gospel.

Paul was not focused on the outward circumstances, but on the eternal reward. He called all of his sufferings “light affliction,” not because they were not real and painful, but because they were temporary and fleeting, and he was looking for Heaven. The way we view our troubles is primarily determined not by how severe those troubles are, but by our perspective. Someone once said that the best question you can ask to keep your perspective is, “Compared to what?” How are we measuring our situation?

Jesus set the example for us to follow. “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2). When we have Heaven in view, the troubles of the outward man pale and the strength of the inner man is restored. Focusing on what is in store helps us stay on the right path no matter what troubles may come.

Today's Growth Principle:
When we look at eternal things, the troubles of the present become insignificant.

Peace in Troubled Times
Friday, May 08, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

John 14:1-4

At the start of 1867, England was going through very difficult times. The previous year's economy downturn had left thousands of people unemployed. There was a rebellion brewing in Ireland, and attacks by supporters of Irish independence left dozens dead across England. In those uncertain days, Pastor Charles Spurgeon chose John 14 as his text and said, “My Brothers and Sisters, some of us live at this hour in the midst of trouble. We do not remember any period more dark with portents of evil than the present watch of earth’s long night. Few events have occurred of late to cheer the general gloom. Think about whether any times have been more vexatious and troublesome than those which just now are passing over our head.”

The presence of trouble in the world is nothing new. Spurgeon's words sound like they could have come from today's news headlines. In fact, Jesus promised those who follow Him that they would experience hard times. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). Yet no matter how bad things are around us, we do not have to allow worry and fear to grip our hearts. We are commanded to not be filled with trouble in our hearts and are encouraged to look forward to our Heavenly home.

Today's Growth Principle:
God's plan is not to remove all trouble from our lives, but to give us peace no matter what comes.

The Restoring Shepherd
Thursday, May 07, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Psalm 23:1-4

All of us go through times in our lives when it seems like everything is coming apart. And there are times when the problem is not individual but widespread. There are times when the world is frantically searching for answers, and it seems like all of the things that people once depended on have failed to provide safety and stability. There are times when it seems like we have no hope and nowhere to turn. But there is never a time when a Christian has no place to rest, for there is never a time when we are not watched and kept by the Good Shepherd.

Sylvia Lockwood wrote:

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto Me and rest:
Oh, weary one, bowed down with care,
Come, lean upon My breast.
There is no load I cannot bear;
Nor burden that I will not share,
So cast on Me thine every care;
Come unto Me and rest.”

The need for restoration is universal. All of us need the strength and healing and encouragement and uplifting and restoration of the Lord. There is pain and heartache in life, and all of us need help to meet it. One of the names of the Holy Spirit is the Comforter. Jesus said, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you” (John 14:26).

Today's Growth Principle:
No matter how weary or distressed we may be, there is comfort and restoration in the arms of Jesus.

Longing for Heaven
Wednesday, May 06, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life.

2 Corinthians 5:1-4

The evidence that we live in a fallen world is easy to see. Everywhere we look, we are reminded that things are not operating as God originally designed them. The very creation around us desires to be returned to its perfection. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22). In contrast, the Heaven that is waiting for us as believers is perfect. Nothing can ever enter it that would change that. Yet in spite of the perfection of Heaven and the corruption of Earth, some people show little interest in the place God has prepared for us. Nothing should be allowed to eclipse the glory of Heaven, and eternity should be our focus.

D. L. Moody said, “If I were going to dwell in any place in this country, if I were going to make it my home, I would inquire about its climate, about the neighbors I would have—about everything, in fact, that I could learn concerning it. If soon you were going to emigrate, that is the way you would feel. Well, we are all going to emigrate in a very little while. We are going to spend eternity in another world. Is it not natural that we should look and listen and try to find out who is already there and what is the route to take?”

Today's Growth Principle:
The desire of our heart should be filled with a longing to enter the presence of God.

Use Your Blessings
Tuesday, May 05, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

1 Timothy 6:17-19

God blesses us because He is good and because He loves us, not because we deserve it. But He does not just bless us for our own sake. When we are blessed, we have a responsibility to use what God has given us to accomplish something worthwhile with those blessings. We should enjoy our blessings and give thanks for them, but we should not begin to think that they are ours by right and can be used only for ourselves.

When King Hezekiah found out he was sick, and the prophet Isaiah told him that he was about to die, he cried out to God. God heard Hezekiah's prayer, and added fifteen years to his life. Yet that miracle of healing and the blessing of a longer life did not produce any lasting benefit either for Hezekiah or for his people. “But Hezekiah rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him, and upon Judah and Jerusalem” (2 Chronicles 32:25).

Some people have much more than others when it comes to financial resources. But every Christian has the responsibility to trust in God rather than in wealth. And every Christian has the responsibility to use those resources he has been blessed with, no matter what size, to invest in God's work. Every earthly investment is uncertain at best, but the treasure we lay up in Heaven can never be lost or stolen away.

Today's Growth Principle:
God will measure our faithfulness by how well we have used the blessings He has given to us.

Always Faithful
Monday, May 04, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?

Luke 16:10-12

Many times people are tempted to cut corners or not be diligent in things they do not think are important. But the truth is that there are no little things—it all matters. Champion football coach Tony Dungy said, “Character begins with the little things in life. We must show that we can be trusted with even the trivial things.” In the eyes of Heaven, nothing on earth is more trivial than money. The street of Heaven is made of gold—it is only fit to walk on there, not something precious.

Yet the way we handle the financial resources which have been entrusted to us is anything but trivial. In fact, Jesus said that if we are not faithful with our money, there is no reason for us to expect God to trust us with spiritual things. Whether our resources are large or small, we are still meant to be faithful in how we use them. “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful” (1 Corinthians 4:2).

Many churches struggle because the members are not faithful with their money. The resources for the work God calls us to do for Him do not normally come in miraculous ways. Though God can do anything, His plan is for His work to be financed by the obedience of His children. When we remember that everything we have belongs to God and not to us, we see why it is so important to do even little things faithfully.

Today's Growth Principle:
In everything, whether we think it is large or small, we should always be faithful to do what is right.

Ecclesiastes (Ecc. 3:18-22)

Ecclesiastes (Ecc. 3:18-22)

We are living in turbulent times. If ever we need the peace of God it is now. The saying “Let go and Let God” applies to our lives. We can’t get out of this on our own. This week ask God for a peace that passes all understanding. Stay safe and healthy.

Life and God's Will
Sunday, May 03, 2020
by Dr. Paul Chappell

Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.

James 4:13-16

In our society, people invest a great deal in trying to create and preserve the illusion that they are in control of the future. While this may be a comforting thought, it is also a complete lie. None of us knows what is going to happen on any given day. We may make careful plans and determine how each hour will go, but that is no guarantee that the schedule will not be completely upended even before we finish breakfast. There is no problem with making wise plans for the future, but we should never forget that God is in control and we are not.

Even our very lives are uncertain. We may take care of our bodies, exercise, and get plenty of rest, but that does not protect us against accidents or prevent us from experiencing disease. At any moment, life can dramatically change. It is like fog that settles overnight only to quickly vanish once the sun warms the sky.

Life is short even in the best case, and that makes it even more important that we discern what God's will for us is and make sure that we are conforming to that every day. “And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth” (Luke 11:2).

Today's Growth Principle:
Our lives from beginning to end are in God's hands, and we must walk daily in His will.
