Day 170

Today’s Reading – Ecclesiastes Chapters 1-6

52811515-L

For who knows what is good for a person in life, during the few and meaningless days they pass through like a shadow? Who can tell them what will happen under the sun after they are gone?  Ecclesiastes 6:12

We can learn alot from the author of Ecclesiastes.

Solomon has it all and searched for meaning and purpose in his life.

He sought purpose in and meaning in wisdom, pleasure, work, accomplishment, relationships, and even wealth. He found them all to be lacking.

He even lamented that everything had a season or a time, but all was fleeting.

We spend so much of our life learning the lessons that Solomon has left us.

Our contentment will be found in our relationship with God – that is the only thing that will stand the test of time.

What are you depending on for your happiness?

Will it last? or will it fade with time?

Solomon speaks wisdom. It is all folly.

So, Seek the Lord.

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
