The race for life now is becoming more complex and people are getting more involved in the rat race for new knowledge through the acquisition of Science and Technology. That is why we hear more often of some illments caused by failure of human endeavours to science and technology thereby leading to dead ends.

Years back we had heard of dysfunction of some scientific experimental anomaly having been tested on animals that affected human beings at long run after getting out of hands becomes an out break of an influnza causing an epidemic and begin to kill people in great numbers like we are experiencing today of Coronavirus pandemic.

Scientists are having field day in trying to find solutions to it but before genuine and effective solution will be found, thousands of human resources and material resources have gone into the drain just like that because of man inhumanity to man in the pursuit of knowledge.

Most times we hear of Warfare Strategies where by a particular nation may want to employ a dangerous chemical to wipe out a section of a persived enemy nation by injecting the chemical substances to the atmosphere in other to cause environmental air pollution just to showcase MIGHT, DOMINANCE AND AUTHORITY Over the other.

Now we hear about a kind of Scientific Technological Trade or Cold War going on amongst big and well advanced nations to the detriment of other nations as a way of proven technological proficiency all because of technically acquired Know-how for the very wrong reasons.

\”But you Daniel keep this prophesy a secret, seal up the book until the time of the end , when many will rush here and there , and knowledge will increase\”, (Daniel 12:4).

\”And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity\”, (Matthew 24:12).

Solomon the king assumed the title the PREACHER when he wrote on the book of Ecclesiastes. In his book he narrated how everything is meaningless having enjoyed all forms and shades of life. He searched for life as if he was conducting a scientific human experiment and through all the processes he discovered that live is worthless and meaningless without God. He founds out that true happiness is not in the power of attainment because those things you think you have acquired can grow winds and disappeared because of certain circumstances that are beyond your control.

\”But as I looked at every thing I had worked so hard to accomplish, it was all so meaningless like chasing the wind . There was nothing really worthwhile anywhere\”. (Ecclesiastes 2:11).

Ecclesiastes 1:11-18. (Amp. B).

11 There is no remembrance of former happenings or men, neither will there be any remembrance of happenings of generations that are to come by those who are to come after them.

1:12 I, the Preacher, have been king over Israel in Jerusalem.

1:13 And I applied myself by heart and mind to seek and search out by [human] wisdom all human activity under heaven. It is a miserable business which God has given to the sons of man with which to busy themselves.

1:14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity, a striving after the wind and a feeding on wind.

1:15 What is crooked cannot be made straight, and what is defective and lacking cannot be counted.

1:16 I entered into counsel with my own mind, saying, Behold, I have acquired great [human] wisdom, yes, more than all who have been over Jerusalem before me; and my mind has had great experience of [moral] wisdom and [scientific] knowledge.

1:17 And I gave my mind to know [practical] wisdom and to discern [the character of] madness and folly [in which men seem to find satisfaction]; I perceived that this also is a searching after wind and a feeding on it.

1:18 For in much [human] wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.

In writing Ecclesiastes, Solomon tried to highlight human knowledge, reasoning or philosophy and the wisdom that comes from God. When human knowledge tends to ignore God\’s wisdom, it could lead to disasters and foolishness.

Psalm 127: 1 says \”Unless the Lord builds a house the work of the builder is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good\”.

Knowledge is power, therefore we must be godly, as we seek wisdom that comes from God in the acquisition of knowledge. What we do with the kind of knowledge acquired is key whether it will be for His good pleasure or for self enslavement. Be Wise!!
