Solomon is slamming every door except the door of faith
Solomon had won the lottery of life… He had more money, riches, power, wisdom and wives than anyone in the ancient world. And Yet Solomon had everything except the one thing he wanted– true joy and happiness.
This led Solomon to a realization, that all the Power, Popularity, Prestige, Pleasure, Possessions––Don’t Last or bring true joy. He realized That Nothing Can Fill the God-shaped void in man’s heart except God Himself! | AUDIO | TEXT PDF
The Bible gives us God’s Wisdom for the Storms of Life… A huge reason why we need wisdom is because we live in a broken world. Ecclesiastes 5 gives us wisdom for how to live by faith–even while in a broken world, by having: 1) A proper attitude toward God. 2) A proper attitude toward power and the influence of others. 3) A proper attitude toward wealth and money. 4) A proper attitude toward life. Solomon begins with God first, because having a proper attitude toward God first, will gives us a proper perspective on everything else in life. | AUDIO | TEXT PDF
