Mid-week Bible Study Series on Ecclesiastes - Ecclesiastes 4:4-16

Tomorrow evening Stefano will continue
the series of mid-week Bible Studies on "Ecclesiastes: A question to which Christ is the only answer" preaching
from Ecclesiastes 4:4-16.

Two are better than one, because they have 
a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, 
one will lift up his fellow...
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (ESV)

To introduce this study we'll interact with the modern concept of the self-made man running the rat-race. 


This concept is well represented by  
The Apprentice, an American reality game show hosted by Donald Trump.
The premise of the show, which bills itself as the "ultimate job interview" in the "ultimate jungle," is to conduct a job talent search for a person to head one of Trump's companies. The show led Trump to become known for his fateful catch phrase, "You're fired!"

 
In the Italian version the Boss Flavio Briatore proclaims 10 Boss's rules.

N° 6 - Il successo รจ la miglior Vendetta.
(Success is the best Revenge)

Are we running the rat-race of the Apprentice,
or testifying God's love and truth
in loving our community?
