When we are young, it is easy to allow the excitements of life to obscure the contemplation of our own brevity. In wisdom, the writer of Ecclesiastes addresses the need to reflect on this reality, so that we will remember our Creator while we still have time. Alistair Begg reminds us that tomorrow is not certain and urges us that now is the accepted time to pursue a right relationship with God.
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.
