Wisdom for Life
What is the meaning of life? This is one of the most existential questions we all ask at some time in our lives. 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. So we turn to scripture for answers. In this Groundwork series we dig into the book of Ecclesiastes to discover biblical wisdom about life and how we can live meaningful lives that are more than just chasing the wind.
