Under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Mississippi, every Master Mason Degree includes a reading of Ecclesiastes 12:1-7. These passages are replete with symbolism about the importance of faith, the frailty of age, and our ultimate mortal death. While I am not a theologian, I would like to offer up an explanation of these verses for your consideration. Some of my explanations may well match up with descriptions you’ve heard before, or imagery that came into your mind naturally when you first heard or read this lines. However, others may not match up so well.
Whether you are Christian or not, these verses are important and have deep meaning to your life, and the lives of those around you.
