Despite Injustice, Fear God and Enjoy Life

In this sermon, Pastor Dave Capoccia again looks at Solomon’s wisdom for how to regard authorities, but this time from Eccl 8:10-15. Solomon’s counsel is that, despite injustice, you should fear God and enjoy life. Solomon presents this counsel by drawing attention to two difficult realities and two wise responses to those realities:

1. Reality: Justice Is Often Slow (vv. 10-11)
2. Response: Wait for the End (vv. 12-13)
3. Reality: Injustice Will Frustrate You (v. 14)
4. Response: Enjoy Good amid Trouble (v. 15)
