Book of Ecclesiastes

"There is no doubt that the book contains a good deal of sobering truths about life, but they are mentioned to contrast with other truths that demonstrate what life can be like when God intervenes. This is not a life devoid of pain, suffering, and confusion over what God is doing (Wright, β€œThe Riddle of the Sphinx,” 334). Indeed, Ecclesiastes is quite clear in stating that we can't fully know the mind of God (Whybray, Ecclesiastes, 29-30). Statements about the limitations of human understanding are common (see Eccl. 1:18; 3:11). The writer is prodding us to realize that no matter how exciting our life may be, it is ultimately meaningless apart from God." - David Moore; Dr. Daniel L. Akin
