Advice from Solomon

"Better what the eyes see than wandering desire." Ecclesiastes 6:9  I'm not sure what these means except to say that sometimes we live in the unreal world of what we wish would be true all the while missing the blessing of the actual people and things right around us today. We develop fantasies of a more perfect setting or more perfect relationships wishing that people or things were different from what they are. Paul reminded the Philippian Christians to think about the things that are true. I think that would be a wise way to approach today.

Lord, help me to live today in the reality of what is, and not waste time, energy and emotion on fantasies that don't and won't exist.
