from Ecclesiastes 1 (HCSB)
9" What has been is what will be,
and what has been done is what will be done;
there is nothing new under the sun.
10 Can one say about anything,
"Look, this is new"?
It has already existed in the ages before us."
Ecclesiastes. One of the wisdom books. One of my favorites...
Did you ever ponder the book of Ecclesiastes with your kids? God commended Solomon for asking Him for wisdom when he could have asked for anything... and he wasn't that old, as I recall...
