Ecclesiastes 7:1-4 – Wisdom for Life

(New Living Translation)

Wisdom for Life

1 A good reputation is more valuable than the most expensive perfume. In the same way, the day you die is better than the day you are born.
2 It is better to spend your time at funerals than at festivals. For you are going to die, and you should think about it while there is still time.

3 Sorrow is better than laughter, for sadness has a refining influence on us.

4 A wise person thinks much about death, while the fool thinks only about having a good time now.
