Ecclesiastes, the Conclusion

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 – Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.

I just read the whole of Ecclesiastes. It is a bit depressing… Solomon has talked about how everyone, no matter how good or bad, wise or foolish, rich or poor they are, dies; and everyone has good and bad things happen in life. But over and over he proclaims that it is better to enjoy life, to work hard and be satisfied, and to serve God and seek wisdom. This from the wisest man in the world.
