A Time for Everything

A Time for Everything

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:

a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.

Season change and there is nothing we can do to stop it from happening. Summer turns into Fall, then Fall into Winter, and then Winter turns to Spring. These are seasons which all have their time. People have their seasons as well. We are born, we then grow from infants into children. Then children turn into adults. In the end life for the adult comes to an end. Each of these points are broken into their seasons as well. A baby grows from being an infant into being a toddler, and then the toddler grows into a young child which will grow to be a teenager. Then teenagers turn into young adults which mature into full adulthood. Adults become seniors and well you know what comes next. We are born we live we grow we learn and then we teach the next generation as they come into this world. There are many things we try to change but this part of life will happen no matter what we do. What we can do is use the time, and the seasons given to us and use them to do the best we can. We can live and not just merely exist. We can learn and grow, and then teach others the lessons we have learned.

I do not know what season you are in your life, but which ever one it is, live it, enjoy it and love like you have never loved before!

  1. I enjoyed the thoughts and the logic of the poem.
    “a time to love, and a time to hate;
    a time for war, and a time for peace.”
    Life is many things. I like the old wisdom. Hard people survive hard times. A outstanding poem.

  2. This is one of my favorite sections in the Bible!

    There are so many seasons in our lives and we have to realize that each shall come to pass. We have to learn to let go of the previous season and be open to welcome a brand new season that includes wisdom from the old.
