Ecclesiastes 5:18 says, “Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.”

— President Trump Should Keep his Promise to Create Jobs

Ecclesiastes 5:18 says, “Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.”

Matthew Henry said about this passage, “Solomon, from the vanity of riches hoarded up, here infers that the best course we can take is to use well what we have, to serve God with it, to do good with it, and take the comfort of it to ourselves and our families; What it is that is here recommended to us, not to indulge the appetites of the flesh, or to take up with present pleasures or profits for our portion, but soberly and moderately to make use of what Providence has allotted for our comfortable passage through this world. We must not starve ourselves through covetousness, because we cannot afford ourselves food convenient, nor through eagerness in our worldly pursuits, nor through excessive care and grief, but eat and drink what is fit for us to keep our bodies in good plight for the serving of our souls in God’s service. We must not kill ourselves with labour, and then leave others to enjoy the good of it, but take the comfort of that which our hands have laboured for, and that not now and then, but all the days of our life which God gives us. Life is God’s gift, and he has appointed us the number of the days of our life; let us therefore spend those days in serving the Lord our God with joyfulness and gladness of heart.”

When God created man, He gave him the mandate to work. Even in Paradise, the Garden of Eden, man had to work. God worked when He created the world, and since man is made in His image, man must work to maintain the world. Work yields just wages which enable people to live and provide for their needs and the needs of their families. Nations thrive and prosper when their citizens are hard and productive workers.

The wise preacher indicates that God gives a man labor all the days of his life. When a man faithfully labors, he will enjoy the rewards of that labor — food and drink and a little down time to take pleasure in the less-laborious things of life. Robert Thune said, “Work is not a result of sin. It is part of God’s original design for humanity. The word ‘cultivate’ in Genesis 2:15 is actually the Hebrew word for work or service. The word keep carries the idea of care or protection. God put Adam in the garden of Eden to work it and to care for it. Let this sink in: Work is what we were created for.”

President Trump ran his campaign on the promise of job creation. Perhaps more than any of his other policies, the black community can benefit from this one. Trump should focus not just on manufacturing jobs in mid-western states, but jobs in major metropolitan areas and in the South.

Statistics show that the black unemployment rate, and especially the black youth unemployment rate, is persistently higher than the national average. If Trump turns this around, he will be a great president for African-Americans, and black voters will turn out to re-elect him in 2020 if the Lord tarries his coming and we live.

— Now, here is the sixth thing black people can do to help the new president: Black Americans Should Not Take Out Their Frustrations With President Trump On Other White People

Romans 12:18 says, “If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.”

Matthew Henry said on this passage, “Since men became enemies to God, they have been very ready to be enemies one to another. And those that embrace religion, must expect to meet with enemies in a world whose smiles seldom agree with Christ’s. Recompense to no man evil for evil. That is a brutish recompense, befitting only animals, which are not conscious of any being above them, or of any existence hereafter. And not only do, but study and take care to do, that which is amiable and creditable, and recommends religion to all with whom you converse. Study the things that make for peace; if it be possible, without offending God and wounding conscience. Avenge not yourselves.”

Christians are called to be at peace with all people. The phrase “as much as lieth in you” means to do all that is in one’s power to make this happen. Robert Murray says the term, “If it be possible, indicates that it may not always be possible.” But we ought not to be the ones who make it impossible for others to get along with us. We ought not to be the ones instigating hatred and discord.

The latter years of Barack Obama’s presidency saw an increase in racial tensions in America. These tensions carried over into the 2016 presidential race, with many fearing that a Trump administration would be bad for minorities. At this writing, the Trump administration has yet to take its full form. However, whatever form it takes is no excuse for blacks to treat all white people, all conservatives, or all Republicans as if they are racists. If we do this, we will only continue the fomenting of racial tensions that have begun relatively recently. Believe it or not, the era of Donald Trump could very well be an era of racial healing and unity as the Obama era was expected to be. I believe that some supporters of the Obama administration woefully miscalculated and thought that somehow getting people to march, loot, and become violent was going to force some positive change and make the race issues go away. That didn’t happen. Sadly, it got worse.


In closing, allow me to remind you that the only way America’s problems can be truly solved is through Jesus Christ, God’s Son who came to this earth two thousand years ago. The problem with people on this earth is sin. And Jesus came to die on the cross for our sins, so that we would not have to suffer eternal punishment in Hell. Billy Graham once said, “I do not believe that any man can solve the problems of life without Jesus Christ.” No matter what problems you are facing, you can only find the solution for your problems in Jesus Christ. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, please allow me to show you how you can accept Him as your Savior today:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20, “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

4. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. Romans 10:9, 13 says: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you are willing to trust Christ as your Saviour, please pray the following prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.
