04/23/08 - 37 I's

From Ecclesiastes 1:12 to 2:26 King Solomon uses "I" 37 times. 37!! In these verses is a long list of everything he did, from seeking wisdom to building houses.

Have you ever tried to take the word "I" out of your vocabulary? Try it for a day.

:] That would be hard; human beings love to talk about themselves. I've heard that the sweetest sound in the world to a person is his own name...

it is notable that during the period of time when Solomon was focused on himself, he was the most disillusioned, but when he turned his face towards God, the world had a freshness and beauty and joy to it that he didn't experience apart from Him
