Then I saw that wisdom excels folly
As light excels darkness. (Ecclesiastes 2:13)You might say: "Well this is obvious." That's right - foolishness does not compare with wisdom. Participation with foolishness is ridicule but greatness follows wisdom. Also, it is clear that, extra words are not necessary to say that it is better to work in the light than sit in the dark. One scary thing that I remember from my childhood, the electricity would shut off pretty often. Sometimes even water... LOL!
For the king was thinking, “At least there will be peace and security during my lifetime." (2 Kings 20:19)
