       King Solomon tells us in Ecclesiastes the keys to living a peaceful life. Indeed, he himself during his lifetime had considered many of the ways of this world, and tried and experimented with different things in order to try and find the meaning of life. What he concluded was the following: “Well, one thing, at least, is good: It is for a man to eat well, drink a good glass of wine, accept his position in life, and enjoy his work whatever his job may be, for however long the Lord may let him live” (Ecclesiastes 5:18, TLB). So, from this verse two key things stick out, and that is enjoying life as well as being content with what we have been given. The Apostle Peter, in his first epistle, cites Psalm 34:12 through 16, and tells us: “For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil” (1 Peter 3:10-12, ESV).
