Ecclesiastes: Week 3 (Lexington)

Ecclesiastes: Week 3 (Lexington)

“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.” Solomon starts Ecclesiastes chapter 3 with fourteen opposites that remind us of God’s sovereignty over all of creation. We often don’t like to think of God as the ultimate authority and ruler over creation – especially when life isn’t going as we expect. Solomon’s words from Ecclesiastes remind us that God is over all of it – every season of life – good and bad. Solomon also reminds us that “He has planted eternity in the human heart,” (v. 11). John Reeves helped us consider how the seasons of life are like the ingredients in a baker’s recipe and when we don’t look at life from an ‘above the sun’ view, we can’t see how they come together to make the whole, finished product, but when we look at life from the eternal perspective, we can see that God is shaping and crafting a finished product that brings Him glory. Are you struggling to see things with an eternal perspective? Drop us an email and let’s start a conversation.
