Wisdom for the Ages: Ecclesiastes 2

main image
Solomon was a man who had received great wisdom from God; yet all this wisdom did not bring him happiness and fulfillment. These words in Ecclesiastes chapter two, or words of a man searching for meaning in his life. Solomon had obtained greater riches than any Kimg before him. His kingdom flourished and he built Jerusalem into the most beautiful city in the world. For years he built elaborate gardens, pools and buildings so that his fame went all over the earth. People came from all over the world to see the works of Solomon.
    After he had spent a great deal of time and effort, he realized that these things were vanity and they didn’t bring happiness or fulfillment. True happiness and fulfillment can only come from  God. God says we will find Him when we search for Him with all our heart. Pursue a close personal relationship with God through Trusting in Jesus Christ and you will find a peace that passes all understanding.

Wisdom for the Ages - Ecclesiastes 1

main image
Solomon, the king of Israel and the son of David, was given tremendous wisdom from God and shared these truths 3000 years ago. Probably, toward the end of his life, he shared these words of wisdom from his life experiences.
Solomon saw a lot of vanity in what mankind pursues as life is lived out. In this first chapter, he talks about the earth, the sun and the wind and how God created these and set them in motion. He makes the statement that there is noting new under the sun. Man may make discoveries but they were already known by God. He puts life into perspective when he says that we, nor those who come after us, will be remembered by future generations. Let us make the most of the time we have left to influence those who are alive today.
