The Uncertainties of Life

11Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you.H7971H3899H6440H4325H4672H7230H3117 2But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead.H5414H2506H7651H8083H3045H7451H776 3When clouds are heavy, the rains come down. Whether a tree falls north or south, it stays where it falls.H5645H4390H1653H7324H776H6086H5307H1864H6828H4725H6086H5307H1933 4Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.H8104H7307H2232H7200H5645H7114 5Just as you cannot understand the path of the wind or the mystery of a tiny baby growing in its mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the activity of God, who does all things.H3045H1870H7307H6106H990H4392H3045H4639H430H6213 6Plant your seed in the morning and keep busy all afternoon, for you don’t know if profit will come from one activity or another—or maybe both.H1242H2232H2233H6153H3240H3027H3045H335H3787H8147H259H2896

Advice for Young and Old

7Light is sweet; how pleasant to see a new day dawning.H216H4966H2896H5869H7200H8121 8When people live to be very old, let them rejoice in every day of life. But let them also remember there will be many dark days. Everything still to come is meaningless.H120H2421H7235H8141H8055H2142H3117H2822H7235H935H1892 9Young people, it’s wonderful to be young! Enjoy every minute of it. Do everything you want to do; take it all in. But remember that you must give an account to God for everything you do.H8055H970H3208H3820H2895H3117H979H1980H1870H3820H4758H5869H3045H430H935H4941 10So refuse to worry, and keep your body healthy. But remember that youth, with a whole life before you, is meaningless.H5493H3708H3820H5674H7451H1320H3208H7839H1892
