Wisdom & Work

Qohelet. Ecclesiastes. Two words are fundamental in this book: wisdom and work.

Elsa Tamez says: “We have in the book the affirmation of life in eating and drinking with joy, with the person you love, even in the midst of slave work. The writer of Ecclesiastes works, do things, reviews life, reflects on death, searches and concludes that there is no better thing in life than to actually do the very basic, the most common, simple things in life.”

  1. What comes to mind when you think of wisdom and work?
  2. In your opinion, what are the very basic, most common, simple things in life?
