Living a Life of Meaning and Significance – Part 1

I suspect all of us live in the hope and dream of having a life of meaning and significance. Solomon has dealt with this over the course of the previous 10 chapters, and has certainly dispelled the myth that meaning and significance are found in pursuits such as money, fame, power, and sinful indulgences and...

A Fly in the Ointment

The big question before us this week is a focus on the two ways in which we conduct our lives. In Ecclesiastes 10 Solomon uses a number of individual statements and comparisons to illustrate for us the dramatic difference between one who is a “fool” and one who is “wise”, and in doing so I...

A Live Dog and a Dead Lion

I suspect all of us could draft quite a list of things we know for certain, some good and some not so good. For example, children are a gift of the Lord, but will certainly complain about chores, cleaning their room, or homework; your car is necessary for transportation, yet you certain to need a...

The Problem & the Solution

This Sunday we’ll be tapping into that age old question of fairness. How is it fair that bad things happen to good people and that good things happen to bad people…Why does God allow this happen?

Open House

A main stay of the real estate business is the “open house”, an opportunity to view a home (online or in person) in order to determine its appeal, value, and functionality. Solomon, in Ecclesiastes 7:1-14, essentially fills the role of our real estate agent as he leads a tour of three houses: the house of...

Money Talks

When we open up God’s word together, we find ourselves in Ecclesiastes 5:10-6:12. In this text Solomon leaves for us a lengthy exhortation on a topic near and dear to all of us: MONEY! Regardless of you having a little or a lot, Solomon speaks very clearly about both the blessing and burden of money...

Loneliness, Leadership, and the LORD

In our text this week, Ecclesiastes 4:9-5:7, we will find Solomon providing us perspective on three topics we are likely familiar with: loneliness, leadership, and the Lord. Although these three may on the surface seem unrelated, there emerges a common theme summarized in the closing words in 5:7, “fear God”. This week we will take...

Take the L
Sermons

Take the L

This week should be fun, as we go from goofy teenage sayings to a highly existential look at life and seeing what really matters and what doesn’t. On top of that, how the Word of God offers us all that we ever truly need. But how do we find that contentment? By making sure we’re...
