"I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil- -this is God's gift to man. I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him."
Ecclesiastes 3:10-14 (ESV)
Tonight Stefano will lead an interactive Bible study on the first three chapters of the Book of Ecclesiastes. We'll ask ourselves:
What put an end to the last time we felt contented?
In the Ecclesiastes’ search for meaning and contentment,
what did he try, and what did he discover?
What is God’s part in the discontent and despair
that the Ecclesiastes discovers as he investigates life?
How does Christ answer to all the questions raised by the Ecclesiastes?
