Folks say that with the rise of millennialism, fluidity of social media, and the shifting priorities of college graduates, things are very different now than when I grew up in the 70’s.
Time in and time out Google Trends proves this wrong.
What trends now and what trended then, is the same.
Number one is sports, number two, Hollywood, and number three and four, media news, and technology.
One of history’s wisest men and a trillionaire by today’s standards, King Solomon of the Bible, would say that Google Trends proves him right.
There is nothing new under the sun and man’s and great responsibility to fear, worship and serve Almighty God, is his recommendation.
Solomon was no push over. He makes Donald Trump, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk look like school kids.
He had hundreds if not thousands of wives, made gold as common as plastic, and could have been the greatest entrepreneur of all times.
Let’s listen to the good king.
Ec 1:9 That which has been, is that which is to be, and that which has been done, is that which will be done, and there is no new thing under the sun.
Ec 1:14 I have seen all the works which are done under the sun; all is to no purpose, and desire for wind.
Ec 2:11 Then I saw all the works which my hands had made, and everything I had been working to do; and I saw that all was to no purpose and desire for wind, and there was no profit under the sun.
Ec 3:16 And again, I saw under the sun, in the place of the judges, that evil was there; and in the place of righteousness, that evil was there.
Ec 4:1 And again I saw all the cruel things which are done under the sun; there was the weeping of those who have evil done to them, and they had no comforter: and from the hands of the evil-doers there went out power, but they had no comforter.
Ec 5:13 There is a great evil which I have seen under the sun—wealth kept by the owner to be his downfall.
Ec 5:18 This is what I have seen: it is good and fair for a man to take meat and drink and to have joy in all his work under the sun, all the days of his life which God has given him; that is his reward.
Ec 8:9 All this have I seen, and have given my heart to all the work which is done under the sun: there is a time when man has power over man for his destruction.
Ec 8:15 So I gave praise to joy, because there is nothing better for a man to do under the sun than to take meat and drink and be happy; for that will be with him in his work all the days of his life which God gives him under the sun.
Ec 9:9 Have joy with the woman of your love all the days of your foolish life which he gives you under the sun. Because that is your part in life and in your work which you do under the sun.
And what did he did determine?
Ec 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.
King Solomon is right and Google Trends proves him so this Sunday!
