What is the Meaning of Life?
This is a question all of us ask as we go through life. No matter who we are, from the time we reach the age where we start to
question the weightier matters of life, we start asking what life is all about it.
For the Christian, that question is answered when we hear Christ’s call to eternal life. We learn that we are created by God,
for God, and saved by God for God’s purposes. Question one of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, puts it this way, “What is the chief end of man? The glorify God and enjoy God forever.”
There is one book that approaches the meaning of life with incredible honesty and intentionality. The Book of Ecclesiastes is
a journey of one wise man, Solomon, who sought to once for all, answer the great question.
This fall, on the Wednesday night Bible study I lead is studying Ecclesiastes. We meet in the parlor, room 114 and we begin at
7:15. All are welcome! If you’ve ever wondered about the meaning of life, if you’re looking for a brutally honest book in the Bible that tackles the hard stuff, then I want to encourage you to join us on Wednesdays.
Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man’s envy of his neighbor.
This also is vanity and a striving after wind. -Ecclesiastes 4:4
