Ecclesiastes 3:2

A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted.
Ecclesiastes 3:2

Solomon, looking back over his life, making observations and drawing certain conclusions about life, makes a list of 28 different times and seasons in life that the typical person will face at one point or another. In the verse above, it signifies that in life, there is a beginning and an end to most things. This is true for our physical lives here on earth, but also in things placed in our lives such as certain relationships, projects, or areas of ministry.

The idea of a time to plant and a time to pluck is to say that there are times in life where we are to begin a new labor and work hard towards it, but at some point, the fruit comes of it and then it's over. It's time to move on to the next thing, start a new work, start a new ministry, or begin a new friendship. There are tons of areas in our lives where God ordains change to take place and sometimes we are reluctant. But change is something that we must embrace as it is a fact of life. To enjoy our lives the way that God intends, we must be willing to work hard, be flexible, and follow His lead whether that be to begin something new or put an end to something that's done.
