The book of Ecclesiastes is not a light read. It exposes several hard truths about life that we would rather ignore, and wisdom about approaching life that we would rather not follow. And yet, the fact that this is not an easy read is one of the reasons why it is so important for us. As this book follows Solomon’s pursuit of meaning in life, it teaches us about where and how to find meaning in our lives.
As we wrap up the series on Ecclesiastes, we step back to see what Solomon identifies as the big problem in life, and the way that Jesus provides an answer in himself.
