Passage: Ecclesiastes 3:9-14 (RSV)

Ecclesiastes 3

9What gain has the worker from his toil?
10I have seen the business that God has given to the sons of men to be busy with.
11He has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity into man's mind, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
12I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live;
13also that it is God's gift to man that every one should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil.
14I know that whatever God does endures for ever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it; God has made it so, in order that men should fear before him.
