Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 1:1-11, 12:8, 2 Chronicles 1:7

Ecclesiastes is a book written by a man who tried it all. More than anyone who ever has or ever will live, Solomon could say “Been there. Done that. Bought the t-shirt.” This is the book that tells us why Solomon did not live happily ever after. It is also a book that tells us why the answer to life’s greatest questions are not going to be found at Harvard, Wall Street, Washington, D.C., or Hollywood, California. Ecclesiastes is a book of regrets, written as an old man, when he had learned the hard way that everything is nothing, apart from God. In this message, Dr. Merritt reviews the major theme of Ecclesiastes--that apart from God there really is no point at all to our lives.

"It is not just that life is brief and relatively short, though we know that is true. It is pointless. It has no meaning apart from God. Add up all the money you make, all the title deeds you have, all the stocks and bonds you own, all the times you get your name in a newspaper, all the promotions you got, and all the ladders that you climbed, but without God it is zero." --Dr. Merritt
