—Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (NASB)
In grade school we were given a test and told simply to follow all the instructions given on the test page. There were a couple of dozen lines requesting that you do all sorts of things like draw boxes in the corner, underlines certain words, and so on. But when you got to the very last line of instructions, it simply stated, “Go back and read the first instruction”. It was shocking because the first instruction was, “Do not do anything until you’ve read all the instructions first”. In reality, we weren’t supposed to do anything commanded after the first instruction.. Ecclesiastes is lot like this in that if you don’t read it to the very last line, you will never understand the proper context of the whole book.
