Ecclesiastes

June 13, 2008 at 5:27 pm | Posted in Devotional thoughts, Wisdom | Leave a comment

I love the book of Ecclesiastes.  When I read through the Bible, I have a hard time with Proverbs.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love the book for the great snippets of wisdom and truth it gives, but reading straight through it is hard for me (after the first nine chapters).  So when I come to Ecclesiastes, I find great refreshment in its pages.  I think Ecclesiastes is one of the most relevant Old Testament books for our society today.

In this gem, Solomon discusses what life without God would be like.  He describes such life as “under the sun” or “on earth,” and his discovery is that such a life is totally empty, vain, meaningless, like “chasing after the wind.”  Solomon pursued most all the things people today pursue to find meaning under the sun, and found all of it to be empty.

Solomon concludes that to find true meaning in life, one must look beyond the sun.  True meaning is found only in God.  if you are interested in reading more details of my thoughts on this matter, click on the following link:
