Welcome to Verse of the Day!

Today's Bible Verse:

Ecclesiastes 12:13–14
The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. (ESV)

Today's Inspiring Thought: True Wisdom - Fear God and Keep His Commands

The passage above is the conclusion to the book of Ecclesiastes.

I like this summary from the introduction to Ecclesiastes in my ESV Study Bible:

"Every human being wants to find out and understand all the ways of God in the world, but he cannot, because he is not God. And yet the faithful do not despair but cling to God, who deserves their trust; they can leave it to him to make sense of it all, while they seek to learn what it means to 'fear God and keep his commandments,' even when they cannot see what God is doing. This is true wisdom."
