Thoughts of an evil genius. Well, evil anyway.
I must admit, I was thinking of you when I linked to that one, Mr. ancient pipe puffer!!!
Not that it is contradicting what you wrote, I get that. But isn't it wonderful that work is meaningful in the godliness and faithfulness with which we do it?
It absolutely is. The thing I like most about the 'work' that you linked to is that it is parenthood and wifeliness, with a bit of editing thrown in.
And so it is, I hadn't noticed that. Which leaves you and me covered. Pity about all those doctors, missionaries and garbage collectors. ;)
Although now I think about it, you might struggle with the wifeliness.
...I don't see how your article can possibly affirm what Jean is saying. Isn't it just meaningless drudgery because it isn't eternally significant?
Dude, feel the dialectic! As I said about the early article, it was but a damp squib tossed off in an hour or so with attention paid mainly to Ecclesiastes. It wasn't a fully pegged out map of my doctrine of creation and eschatology, with a quick side-trip through the doctrines of sin and redemption.One of these days I will come back on this with a longer post. For now, the summary would be that the bridge won't last but the love that built it will.If that's too obscure, you might need to wait for the longer post.I still think people have trouble accepting that Eccles was serious.
