Ecclesiastes – Searching for purpose

Ecclesiastes – Searching for purpose

Today we continue in our sermon series learning from the book of Ecclesiastes. What is the purpose of life? Why are we here? Is there more to this life than just going through the same routine day after day? In Ecclesiastes, we learn that life is like a vapor and that ultimately, our lives are about eternity. Since God is the one who gives ultimate meaning in life, we find our meaning in Him.

Today, we study Ecclesiastes chapter 2, and we learn about Solomon’s search for purpose and meaning in everything under the sun.
