June 4 - Ecclesiastes 12

keepers of the house = hands and arms
strong men = legs
grinders = teeth
those who look = eyes
doors = ears

The dreariness of old age in chapter 12 describes that life which is only focused on what is under the sun and separate from God.  The man and woman of faith, however, though they will certainly have trials, may grow old with God on their side and with God's grace constantly helping them.  Read what happens for the Christian despite physical aging: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.  (from a Bible Study by Rev. Al Espinosa.)
