I'm Sorry For Your Loss

September 5, 2021 • Ecclesiastes 3:1–11

There is an appropriate time for everything, the unpleasant as well as pleasant experiences. That is the argument of Ecclesiastes 3. This is not merely a description of what happens in life, it is a description of what God permits. The eight opening verses gather around three major divisions which correspond, amazingly enough, to the divisions of our humanity: body, soul, and spirit. The first four pairs deal with the body, the second with the soul and the last with the spirit. The driving point is that there is a season for everything, including grief.
