Wednesday 21st Feb (Ecclesiastes 1:1-11)

If you have ever read the book of Ecclesiastes (or if you were in church on Sunday!), what are your initial impressions?

The word “meaningless” in verse 2 could also be translated “breath” (see Psalm 39:5 and Psalm 144:4).  As the Teacher ponders the shortness of our lives “under the sun”, how does that make us feel? Why?

How do verses 4-11 humble us? 

As Christians we know that the Bible has much more than this to say about life (and eternal life!). But how might these 11 verses help us to embrace our God-given limits? How might our lives look different, if we really digested this wisdom? 

What questions are we left with?
