This verse, found in the wisdom literature of the Bible, serves as a reminder that life is a series of seasons, each with its own purpose and activities. The author of Ecclesiastes acknowledges the complexity and variety of human experience, encouraging us to recognize that God has ordained each season for a reason. In the midst of life’s changes, it’s important to trust in God’s sovereign plan and timing, knowing that He is in control and has a purpose for every season of our lives.
