Ecclesiastes: What Will Satisfy

Sunday we started a new series through the book of Ecclesiastes. Whether the author is Solomon or another evaluating Solomon’s life, the message is the same, “life after the curse is meaningless outside of a trusting relationship with our Creator.” The conclusion makes the point saying, “The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecc. 12:13)

This Sunday we launch into Solomon’s attempt to find meaning in wisdom and pleasure. Each has a benefit to the individual but ultimately fall short of satisfying meaning. Wisdom is better than folly, but creates it’s own groaning in the soul. Pleasure, which he sought in multiple venues like wine, great accomplishments, slaves, sex, and work, all offer something, but fall short in filling the void of "eternity in our hearts.” (Ecc. 3:11)

 So come Sunday and listen to the Preacher’s conclusions!
