Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 - Living In The Light Of The Limits Of Human Knowledge

1 Cast thy bread upon the waters, for thou shalt find it after many days. 2 Give a portion to seven and even to eight, for thou dost not know what evil shall come upon the earth. 3 If the clouds are full of rain, they shall empty themselves upon the earth; and if the tree falls toward the south or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it shall remain. 4 He that observes the wind shall not sow, and he that regards the clouds shall not reap. 5 As thou dost not know what is the way of the spirit nor how the bones grow in the womb of her that is with child, even so thou dost not know the works of God who makes all. 6 In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand; for thou knowest not which shall prosper, either this or that or whether they both shall be equally good.
