The book of Ecclesiastes offers a biblical perspective on everything “under the sun.” This Bible study explores the wisdom of living in light of the reality “above the sun.” A joyful life begins by stopping the manic pursuit of pleasure and fulfillment in earthly things. Happiness and pleasure are gifts from God when life is enjoyed as He intends. By fearing God and keeping His commands—through the grace of Jesus—we can find contentment through the proper perspective of God, life, pleasure, and mortality.
As we grow in our understanding of the book of Ecclesiastes, we will see that happiness and pleasure are gifts from God when enjoyed as He intends and learn that Jesus is our wisdom—the way we can live wisely and find happiness. We'll gain a biblical perspective on God, life, pleasure, and mortality while viewing your earthly pursuits from God’s perspective.
