ECCLESIASTES: THE MEANING OF LIFE
With life comes hard questions. Each of the questions often lead to the most important question: “What is the meaning of life?” The answer to this question can be found in every book of the Bible. However, one book has its primary focus on answering this question. The Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes is King Solomon’s end-of-life sermon to the people (and us) where he states his conclusions from a life lived searching for meaning apart from God. If you, too, have struggled with life’s questions, you will not want to miss Solomon’s honest and frank manifesto to the meaning of life.
“The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13, ESV)
