Ecclesiastes 11:2; Ecclesiastes 11:5-6; Ecclesiastes 11:8-9
Put your investments in several places - many places even - because you never know what kind of bad luck you are going to have in this world.
God made everything, and you can no more understand what he does than you understand how new life begins in the womb of a pregnant woman.
Do your planting in the morning and in the evening, too. You never know whether it will all grow well or whether one planting will do better than the other.
Be grateful for every year you live. No matter how long you live, remember that you will be dead much longer. There is nothing at all to look forward to.
Young people, enjoy your youth. Be happy while you are still young. Do what you want to do, and follow your heart's desire. But remember that God is going to judge you for whatever you do.
