    Dear PB brethren,

    I was recently meditating on the first question of the Larger Catechism and penned the following lines; perhaps you will find them an encouragement as you seek after your highest end.

    It brings to mind Ecclesiastes, one of my favorite books. Thank you.

    :amen: I've recently been meditating on the Proverbs and it really struck me most profoundly for the first time how apt the analogy of the pursuit of two Ladies is to the believer's walk. The seduction of the Strange Woman is easy. She flatters and her rewards come quickly only to find you have been ensnared as prey in a trap. Lady Wisdom cries out that She only is wisdom and worthy of pursuit but such pursuit is lifelong. Taken together with Ecclesiastes and the recognition that our present life is but a "vapor" or "breath" this pursuit is the only thing that provides perspective and meaning to all the blessings of this sojourn.
