Man’s history shows how time was used. Time equates to progress. Long ago, man’s first means of transportation was his own two feet; the mode of transportation: walking. Man explored the world first by walking: either in solitude or in groups. Few miles and kilometers were traversed in days.
Now, more than ever, people are breathlessly rushing from one point to the other, from pursuit to pursuit, from one thing to another thing. People of today get so caught up with the activities and things that flood them on a daily basis that the urgency and pressure they experience can easily be felt and recognized, as words or phrases like ‘priority’ and ‘pressing matters’ frequently manifest even in their most casual conversations.
In Ecclesiastes 3, Solomon seems to contemplate on the dynamics of time. He started this chapter with the realization that ‘there is a time for everything’. This seemingly implies that no amount of ‘rushing’ can quicken the occurrence of things; that unless God determines it to be so, it will not be. Even the most coincidental is part of God’s plans; that everything has a purpose and every purpose has its own time.
