In this sermon, Pastor Dave Capoccia examines Solomon’s teaching in Ecclesiastes 6:1-12, a passage that functions as a kind of mirror to Ecclesiastes 5:8-20 and as a summary of the main points of the first half of the book. In Ecclesiastes 6:1-12, Solomon teaches that life without grateful enjoyment of God’s good gifts is miserable. Solomon then gives three reasons why you should gratefully enjoy God’s good gifts instead of pursue useless misery.
1. More Days and More Descendants Are Empty without Enjoyment (vv. 3-6)
2. More Things Will Never Satisfy the Soul (vv. 7-9)
3. More Knowledge Will Never Reveal New Secrets (vv. 10-12)
