Not measuring up?

Ecclesiastes 7:20
Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.
In this chapter of the book of Ecclesiastes, King Solomon writes about life and the meaninglessness of it without God. From his personal experiences, because he “had it all”, including wealth, and power, he writes that there is nobody on this earth who does no sin except Jesus, the Son of God. But this cannot be said of any other. Wisdom strengthens us and the character of a wise person is just, but if when we look at our lives we feel that we can’t measure up, we have to remember, that there is no person free from sin in thought, word or deed. Through the blood of Christ shed on the cross and the grace of God we have been made righteous – through His righteousness, but not free of sin.
