Death's Lesson About Life in God

Ecclesiastes 7:1-22

Death's Lesson About Life in God
00:00 00:00

Main Idea: When death exposes life's limitations, wisdom calls us to faith in God.

Death has lingered throughout the book of Ecclesiastes up to this point. It has been in the shadows, it has loomed overhead, it has been observed from a distance. But here Solomon urges us to face death up close and personal. Why? Because when we think rightly about death, we will learn to live more joyfully in this life. When we go to a funeral, when a loved one dies, when we have a near death experience, we're forced to recalculate what really matters in this life. Solomon wants us to learn how to 'look forward' to death. Not in the sense of longing for it, but in the sense of gaining the perspective death teaches. And he wants us to grab hold of that perspective today! He wants us to let the lesson that death teaches guide us today before death comes! And so, we're extended an invitation to a lesson from death in this passage. We would do well to attend and listen closely.
