“Vanity of Vanities… all is vanity…” So begins and ends one of the most difficult and challenging books of the Bible. At first glance, this book can seem like a depressing read. It emphasizes the emptiness of life and the vanity of so many good things we experience in the world. But a careful reading will show you that the full message is God-exalting and joy-inducing. In this eight-week Love God Greatly study of the book of Ecclesiastes, our questions regarding the meaning of life will lead us to Solomon’s wise conclusion: that in order for one to find meaning, purpose, and satisfaction in life, he or she must know God. To know the Lord, to love Him, fear Him, follow Him, and find our identity in Him is what frees us to enjoy the temporal gifts in this life and to look beyond those gifts to life everlasting.
