Ecclesiastes Pages

All of life is a rich gift from God—both the good and the hard things. So why do we struggle to find contentment? Why do we persistently seek that which we know will leave us empty? Materialism, pleasure, status, relationships. Pursuing them is like chasing the wind. The author of Ecclesiastes invites us to reflect on the ambiguity and fleeting nature of life. We are all seeking meaning, and the answer is both simple and complex—to fear God and enjoy what he has given us in its season. Living a small life is not easy, but we can rest with hope in the sovereignty and justice of a God who will one day make all things right.

So I set out to learn everything from wisdom to madness and folly. But I learned firsthand that pursuing all this is like chasing the wind.
