Bible Study on Ecclesiastes - Ecclesiastes 2:12-26

Please pray for tomorrow evening when Stefano will continue the series of Bible Studies on Ecclesiastes preaching from Ecclesiastes 2:11-26.


There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God, for apart from him who can eat or who can have enjoyment? 
For to the one who pleases him God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy...
Ecclesiastes 2:24-26a (ESV)
 
 
As introduction to illustrate Ecclesiastes' point that death brings 
wisdom, folly, work and worries to nothing, we'll explore the concept 
of "Carpe Diem" (Seize the day) from a Christological perspective.
 
In the XV century Lorenzo de' Medici wrote a famous poem 
expressing the Carpe Diem lifestyle:
 
"Who’d be happy, let him be so:
Nothing’s sure about tomorrow."
