a wider horizon...............

      In Ecclesiastes we read, "He hath made every thing beautiful in his time; also he hath set the world in their heart" (3:11).  The Revised Standard Version says, ". . . he has put eternity into man's mind."  These words give us a valuable message in these days of stress and strain, of rush and turmoil, when part of the difficulty is that the horizon seems so near to us.  However, a horizon is only the limit of our sight.  This little phrase from Ecclesiastes is like a  hill which we may climb so that we may see a wider horizon.
