World Sunday School first appeared on the Internet on May 14, 2003. Since that time, this independent website has supplied weekly graded Sunday School lessons and handouts (and, often, coloring pages) to help Sunday School teachers worldwide. We hope to help preserve the Sunday School movement which had its glory days in the 1930's. In a time when so many churches are downsizing Sunday Schools, we aim to preserve this Christian teaching to enrich the life of children and youth worldwide.

For Everything there is a Season

For Everything There Is A Season (Making Your Life Matter)
January 8, 2023

I often wonder how King Solomon felt as he wrote the words to what we now know as Ecclesiastes chapter 3.  There is such wisdom in those verses, an actual lived wisdom not just something that he was taught with spoken words.  We know King Solomon for his great wisdom and riches that God gave to him.  Solomon was the son of King David and Bathsheba.  We know that he wrote Proverbs, Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes.  In Ecclesiastes, we see a different Solomon.  We see a man that has lived and had all that he has desired, but has seen and understood that everything under the sun is vanity.  He writes that in life there is a time and season for all things.  He writes in his wisdom and we know that with wisdom comes much responsibility and we are only here for a short time. Solomon probably much more than anyone else understood that only those things that we do for God are the things that really matter and are the things that will last and help others.

GOD Bless You All. : )

For Everything There Is A Season (Making Your Life Matter)

In Ecclesiastes 3 Solomon writes,

1. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5. A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6. A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
9.What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10. I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11. He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

There is a time for all things. When we are born and young we sometimes do not see the things that lay ahead. We do not think about dying, but the time will come. Death is sure. It knows not respect of persons or age. People die at all ages.
