New Perspective

Sometimes, to appreciate the life we have, we need to take up something new. That might mean signing up for a home improvement course at the local Lowe’s or Home Depot. Learning how to lay tile or cut the perfect angle may not sound like much, but it’s doing something we didn’t know how to do before. If we’re to find ways to embrace life, then we might need to take up hiking or take some classes on photography. When Qoheleth warns of life’s impending demise, he likely means finding something in life that gives us a new energy, like taking your lunch break once a week to help at a food bank, loading up baskets or carts for customers.
