Ecclesiastes: If you weren’t depressed when you started this reading, it would be understandable if you became so after reading it. The reading strikes me as the opposite approach to affliction than Job. While difficult to accept try to remember that God is still sovereign and that passage through this life is quite brief. I always lament over anyone’s suicide – truly a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
