Proverbs from Grandpa (Part 1)

Pastor Sonny continues our study of the Book of Ecclesiastes, moving into Chapter 7 where Solomon, now an old man, ends his laments and begins sharing the wisdom that he has learned from his expriences under the sun.

1 A good name is better than precious ointment,
   and the day of death than the day of birth.
2 It is better to go to the house of mourning
   than to go to the house of feasting,
   for this is the end of all mankind,
   and the living will lay it to heart.
3 Sorrow is better than laughter,
   for by sadness of face the heart is made glad.
4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
   but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
5 It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise
   than to hear the song of fools.
6 For as the crackling of thorns under a pot,
   so is the laughter of the fools;
   this also is vanity.

 ‭ – Ecclesiastes 7:1-6
