Ecclesiastes 3:9-14

9. What does the worker gain from his toil?
10. I have seen the burden God has laid on men.
11. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
12. I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.
13. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God.
14. I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it. God does it so that men will revere him.

John 8:31-41

31. To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
32. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
33. They answered him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?"
34. Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
35. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
36. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
37. I know you are Abraham's descendants. Yet you are ready to kill me, because you have no room for my word.
38. I am telling you what I have seen in the Father's presence, and you do what you have heard from your father. "
39. "Abraham is our father," they answered. "If you were Abraham's children," said Jesus, "then you would do the things Abraham did.
40. As it is, you are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God. Abraham did not do such things.
41. You are doing the things your own father does." "We are not illegitimate children," they protested. "The only Father we have is God himself."
