Introduction to the book of Ecclesiastes

Knowing God and making Him known

1 Kings 4:29-31, 34
Solomon, the most popular, richest and wisest man of his time. He had it all. This is what he learned in his life.

Ecclesiastes 1:1-11
In life we always want more. But we are never content.
Life can be like an endless pursuit going around and around never getting anywhere.

Solomon came to realize that without God life doesn’t make much sense. It’s just an endless cycle of futility.

Three thousand years later we still face with the same dilemma. We chase money, popularity thinking that they would fill the void that only God can fill.

Nothing in this world can satisfy the deep longing for God.

Following the words of a God will help us save countless years of chasing useless things in our lives.

I should stop and think: are the things I am chasing worth investing all my time and money? Maybe I should start looking into the word of God to find answers as to what’s worth.
