Enjoy your work (Eccl 3:22-3:22)

“So I saw that there is nothing better

Than that all should enjoy their work.

That is their lot.

Who can bring them to see

What will be after them?”

Qoheleth concludes this chapter on death with the idea that you should enjoy your work. This is sometimes forgotten today. He maintains that this is your fate in life. You have no idea what will come after you, so why not enjoy what you are doing today.
