Two Ships

     This brief tale is a well-known rabbinic parable to explain what seems to be a difficult verse in Ecclesiates. Rather than being a pessimistic take on the trials of life, it is in fact an explicit recognition that the effort was worthwhile. When a person's journey on this earth comes to an end, it is as if the ship has finally reached its home port fully laden with the riches of life.

The day of death is better than the day of one's birth.
     - Ecclesiastes 7:1

     Two ships were in the ocean, laden with merchandise. One ship was coming in, the other was leaving. People were praising the ship coming into port. Others stood by amazed and said, "Why are you praising this ship and not the other?"

     In reply they said to them, "We are praising the incoming ship since we know this ship has departed in peace and arrived at its destination in peace. But we do not know what the future will bring to the ship that has just begun it's journey."

     So it is with a person who is born:
We do not know the nature of his future deeds.
But when he leaves this world we know the nature of his deeds.
