Want to be Entertained with New Things?

Godward-The Belvedere-1913Matthew Henry comments on Ecclesiastes 1:10:

If we would be entertained with new things, we must acquaint ourselves with the things of God, get a new nature; then old things pass away, and all things become new, 2 Corinthians 5:17. The gospel puts a new song into our mouths. In heaven all is new (Revelation 21:5), all new at first, wholly unlike the present state of things, a new world indeed (Luke 20:35), and all new to eternity, always fresh, always flourishing. This consideration should make us willing to die, That in this world there is nothing but the same over and over again, and we can expect nothing from it more or better than we have had.
