Cast Your Bread Upon The Waters

Ecclesiastes 11:1&2 (NIV),

“Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again.  GIVE portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.” 

Verse three part a says, “If clouds are full of water,
they pour rain on the earth.”  Isn’t it wonderful the way the good Lord helped man understand that the rain will come forth when the clouds are full?  That passage was written before people were making weather reports.    

Verse seven says that “Light is sweet, it pleases the eyes to see the sun.”  God’s Word reminds us how good it is to see the light of the day.  Jesus is the light of the word. I know it is pleasant to keep your eyes on the Son of God.
