What is the meaning of life? Why are we here?
Solomon, often regarded as the most wealthy individual in the history of the world, struggled with this same question. Beyond his wealth Solomon also possessed wisdom beyond that of earthly men. Yet how is it a man with these blessings, someone who denied himself no earthly pleasure, still struggled with life and the reason for it?
If you read through Ecclesiastes you see Solomon go back and forth, working his way through the topic. In the end he lands on: The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil. (Ecc. 12:13-14).
Would encourage you to read through this book over the course of this week, you will gain incredible insight into the thought process of Solomon and likely gain some perspective on your purpose here.
