Today on The Dwelling Place we’ll continue to hear some powerful reflections from one of the wealthiest and powerful men of all time, and the conclusions regarding life that he reached, with God’s prompting.  It sure speaks volumes to us today. Solomon had everything a person could want, materially, yet he felt empty.

God believes in using tests, and through them He reveals what we’re really like. There are good reasons for them, and we’ll see that in a moment. Pastor Al Pittman finishes up his study in Ecclesiastes three today.

Our lives revolve around time.  Could you imagine trying to navigate through life without it?  When would we arrive at work, or know when to meet someone, or schedule an appointment without the time?  God is also very concerned about time, and as we’ll see today there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.

As we look around it might be easy for us to conclude that things are spinning out of control, and wonder if God is really in control!  So is He?  Ecclesiastes makes it clear that God is sovereign and everything under His control has its season.  God’s timing is perfect - ours isn’t. So shouldn’t we try to exercise patience and wait for God to act in our lives and show us the way?

Today we again study Ecclesiastes, chapter two. This chapter can be capsulated in two facts: The pursuit of pleasure and possession is futile, and true satisfaction is found in a relationship with Christ. Here we have King Solomon, who had everything a man could want materially, and yet he felt empty and unfulfilled.  Pastor Al speaks today about where true satisfaction is found.

King Solomon was a deep thinker - and realized at a time in his life that the material and sensual pleasures he enjoyed were really worthless. That’s a great lesson for us in this materialistic world we live in. Pastor Al Pittman shares this search for a satisfied life from Ecclesiastics chapter two.

Material possessions have nothing to do with eternal happiness. If you’re looking for a perfect example of this truth, you need look no further than King Solomon. He had everything a man could want - and yet he reached a time in his life when he felt completely empty. The book of Ecclesiastes is the outpouring of those feelings from the heart of Solomon. Today, we finish our study of chapter one.

Ecclesiastes is one of the most practical books in the bible, because it asks a question we ll ask from time to time - what’s the point of life? Now, you would think that a man like Solomon, who had everything a person could want, would never ask that question, but he was really lost at this point in his life. Join us in Ecclesiastes chapter one.

Solomon may have been the first man who suffered a “mid-life crisis”. He had about everything a man could want, yet he felt empty. I don’t know about you, but I know many people who are in that place today. So what is the point of it all? Beginning today, we’ll answer that question with an in depth look at Ecclesiastes.
