Today’s verse puts us all on equal footing, reminding us that we are still headed to the same place.
Ecc 6:8 So are wise people really better off than fools? Do poor people gain anything by being wise and knowing how to act in front of others?
Rhetorical questions asking if smart people have it better than dummies. Sure the smart person can accrue wealth over this life, but in the end, we are all headed to the same grave. Same thing he says in the second half of the verse, a poor person who has good manners or becomes smart is still bound for the same destination.
So while we are in this life, we may have good seasons and bad one’s, we may live it rich or poor, or wise or foolish, but the life that comes after this one, that’s the one that counts and there’s no way to the Father’s kingdom but through The Son!
