A sermon on Ecclesiastes 9:1-12, part of a sermon series on Ecclesiastes preached at our church.
Death, according to The Teacher in Ecclesiastes, can make us mad. This madness can show itself in one of two ways:
- We want to build empires, gain possessions, squeeze everything we can from this life – to distract ourselves from the reality of death;
- We try to do all that we can to avoid death, fearing it, and trying to be as safe as we can.
Ecclesiastes says that both of these approaches are wrong. Ecclesiastes teaches us that we should accept life as a gift and live it gratefully and joyfully. Find out more in this sermon on Ecclesiastes 9:1-12.
