In order to survive, we need to earn a living. But it’s not our career, it’s not our portfolio, and it’s not our wealth, that will deliver genuine peace and comfort. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg reminds us that only a God-shaped perspective will truly satisfy.
Trapped in a dark world without God, the writer of Ecclesiastes searches frantically for some light on the path. Indulging in everything this world has to offer leaves him empty and unfulfilled. After climbing high on the ladder of life, he makes the tragic discovery that it was propped against the wrong wall. Growing cynical about life’s achievements, he begins to question the rationale behind everything. These studies touch the pulse of a generation caught between material prosperity and spiritual poverty. Alistair Begg helps us make sense of this relevant book, so that we can live life with purpose and meaning. In order to do this, we must first discover what it means to fear God, which is the beginning of true wisdom.

Whatever your hand finds to do" refers to works that are possible. There are many things that our heart finds to do that we will never do. It is good for it to be in our heart; but if we would be eminently useful, we must not be content with forming schemes in our heart and talking of them; we must practically carry out "whatever your hand finds to do."One good deed is worth more than a thousand brilliant theories. ...
It’s easy to become distracted and overwhelmed by the trouble in our world. Court decisions, refugees, and hostile governments can cause us to wonder if God is still in charge. Yet similar struggles have always existed and this brand new study from Alistair Begg in the book of Daniel reminds us that God sets up and removes earthly leaders, and His sovereignty reigns supreme from day to day, and from age to age.
