Memento Mori

In this chapter, the teacher brings to light the unpredictability of death and how it is the same for all, the good and the evil, and how mysterious the ways of the Lord are. The teacher also tells us what we can learn from death and why it is important, with the example of a living dog being better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die and hence the teacher highlights the importance of being happy with what you have and to live in joy, in the word of the Lord, all the days that the Lord has given us. The word of the Lord tells us how through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have hope toward his eternal kingdom of which we shall partake.
