Read: Ecclesiastes 4:4-12
The book of Ecclesiastes helps us adjust our expectations for what it means to live in a broken world. Ecclesiastes 4:4-12 outlines a few options. We can try to avoid the messiness of this world by folding our arms and sleeping our way through life. Or, we can clench our fists, work overtime, and try to control every aspect of life. Our third option of living in this broken world is better. The Qohelet says it looks like working with open-handed trust and rest.
