Ecclesiastes: Wisdom for Life

What is the meaning of life? Does anything matter? Is there anything of lasting value in this life? If you’ve ever asked yourself one of these questions, you are not alone. All people desire to find meaning and create value for their lives. But as believers and followers of Christ, we do not want just any meaning for life, we want God’s meaning for our lives. In Ecclesiastes, the Teacher explores the meaning of life and searches for lasting value. He considers wisdom, knowledge, pleasure, work, and time, but comes away from his search with a cynical and unsettling view: life is meaningless. In this Groundwork series, we’ll examine the major themes in Ecclesiastes, we’ll discuss what we can learn from the Teacher, and see how he helps us evaluate life through the context of our faith.
