Chapter 10 of Ecclesiastes introduces us to the foolish person. Like dumb sheep, we are susceptible to making foolish choices that can destroy a good reputation, and being careless with our choices in this life is evidence that we are not prepared for the next. Alistair Begg explains that a foolish person can only be transformed by the wisdom of the Cross.
Chasing The Wind
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.
