Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Ecclesiastes 3:7 (b) The Lord is reminding us that it is not necessary to continue in building something that is not profitable. Sometimes we start on a project which we think will be useful, and then find out we are wasting our time. We should then discontinue that project.
Joel 2:13 (a) By this word we are called upon to feel a deep grief over sin and evil.
Matthew 7:6 (a) If we reveal precious things of GOD to the ungodly scoffer, he may use it to injure us in many ways. We saw this exemplified in the fact that we helped China in her distress; we also helped Japan at the time of the earthquake; and we helped Russia in the time of the war. We received back bullets, persecution of American citizens, expulsion of American missionaries, and a closed frontier to our travelers. This is a perfect example of the meaning of this passage.
