One Is the Loneliest Number

This passage we’ve come to in our study of Ecclesiastes is a wonderful treatment on the importance of friendship and the value that other people bring to our lives.  For the past couple of chapters, Solomon has been weighing life in the balance.  He has considered life ‘under the sun’ and has come to theContinue reading

When Life Isn’t Fair, part 2

I want you to open your Bible with me to the fourth chapter of Ecclesiastes, where we will read from the first six verses.  I want to speak to you from the subject, “When Life Isn’t Fair.”  Have you ever felt that way before?  Sure you have.  Perhaps you were mistreated by another person, orContinue reading

When Life Isn’t Fair, part 1

From the earliest years of our childhood, we had our own perception of whether or not something was ‘fair.’  Right?  I mean, you have more than likely made this statement at some point in your life: “It’s just not fair!”  You felt like you were getting the short end of the stick, the raw endContinue reading

From Grave to Glory

The truth that Jesus conquered the grave is what gives confidence to our lives.  It is what serves as the impetus in our mission.  For this reason, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the lynchpin of Christianity.  Without it, we would have no gospel.  Nor would we have any hope for life beyond death.  IfContinue reading

The God of Time & Eternity

Stewardship of life demands that we know what time it is, and this is largely the message of this third chapter of Ecclesiastes.  The word ‘time’ is mentioned on 31 separate occasions in this chapter.  Though we have eternity in our hearts, we are time bound creatures.  We are born with a longing for anotherContinue reading

Time Keeps On Ticking

The book of Ecclesiastes is so important because it shows us that ultimate meaning and lasting satisfaction cannot be found ‘under the sun.’  That phrase is used some 30 times throughout the book and it describes a view of life that is strictly earth bound.  Solomon, the writer of Ecclesiastes, uses this phrase to makeContinue reading

Lessons Learned

All of us desire meaning in life, and that’s true no matter who you are.  Our search for it often leads us down winding paths filled with short-lived bursts of satisfaction that shine bright for a brief time but eventually wane.  When we attempt to find ultimate meaning in the pursuit of pleasure, or throughContinue reading

Trivial Pursuit

The words trivial and trivia can be traced back to a Latin noun meaning “a place where three roads meet.” In time, it also came to mean “of little worth or importance.”  This is the main meaning of the word today. By this definition, the expression ‘trivial pursuit’ obviously refers to more than a boardContinue reading

Life Under the Sun

No matter where a person looks, no matter what direction he or she turns, there is no lasting satisfaction to be found—at least not in the temporal things of life.  The reason is that we’ve been made for eternity.  That is why only the eternal glory of God can fulfill the eternal void in theContinue reading

Glory That Satisfies

Last week, I began a series of messages on contentment and the search for happiness that is found in the heart of every human being.  No matter who you are, no matter how old you are, I can guarantee that you have a desire on the inside of you to be happy.  Where does itContinue reading
