King Solomon was a powerful man, yet he was not immune to the everyday trials of life. We are in Ecclesiastes chapter three today, as we continue Solomon’s search for the answer to this question - what’s the purpose of my life?

As we look around us in the year 2022, it might be easy for us to conclude that things are spinning out of control. Many people today wonder if God is really in control!  So is He?  Ecclesiastes makes it clear that God is sovereign and that everything under His control has its season.

It’s a real pleasure to have you along, as we again open our Bibles to the book of 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.

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. Here’s pastor Al Pittman on a 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.  Maybe that’s the place in life you’re at today?

Ecclesiastes is one of the most practical books in the bible, because it asks a question we all ask from time to time - what’s the point of life?

The book of Ecclesiastes is attributed to King Solomon, the first of Israel’s wise men. As wise as he was, we can see in the twelve chapters of this book that wisdom didn’t necessarily bring peace to Solomon’s heart. He had many questions about life. In fact, Solomon may have been the first man who suffered a “mid-life crisis”.

About Al Pittman

Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents. They covet your prayers for their family and ministry as they endeavor to live a life pleasing to the Father.
