Proverbs of a 36 yr old man

Who is smart enough to explain everything? Life is hard, but there is a time and a place for everything, though no one can tell the future. We cannot control the wind nor determine the day of our death. There is no escape in time of war, and no one can hide behind evil. I noticed all this and thought seriously about what goes on in the world. Why does one person have the power to hurt another? Look, the wicked are buried with honor, but God's people die abruptly and are forgotten. None of this makes sense. When we see criminals commit crime after crime without being punished, it makes other people want to start a life of crime. They commit hundreds of crimes and live a long time. In contrast, many good citizens are treated as criminals, while criminals are honored as though they were good citizens. You can go day and night without sleep, trying to understand what goes in this world. In everything God does no one can understand his ways. No matter how we try or how much we claim to know, we cannot understand it all. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and destroy. And so we humans fear God, because he shows no respect for those who are proud and think they know so much. The Almighty is beyond our reach and exalted in power; in his justice and great righteousness, he does not oppress. God cannot be seen--but his power is great, and he is always fair. Don’t be afraid of those who want to kill your body; they cannot touch your soul. Fear only God, who can destroy both soul and body in hell. No one can stare at the sun after a breeze has blown the clouds from the sky. Yet the glorious splendor of God All-Powerful is brighter by far. Jesus is coming like the rising sun! He brings understanding and truth riding on justice and peace.
