    this morning i read ecc 7:15-18. Talk about being odd on the surface where he says to avoid being overly righteous and thus destroy yourself in the process, and then to avoid being overly wicked–ok get that latter part! I see plenty of commands to be zealous, hate evil and do good. i see encouragement in new testament to be radical disciples of Jesus to take up your cross daily. This passage needs more unpacking. Any thoughts?
