Life Worth Living - week 8

Life Worth Living - Ecclesiastes series

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Never is Solomon more retrospectively wise than in his discovery that he could have been protected from a lot of pain and failure if he had only cultivated authentic, trusted friendships. He also realizes that a community of trust would have caused families and life around him to have flourished. We have no idea what beauty we miss for our community and families when we try to hide from meaningful friendships. They are a lot of work, and a source of their own pain. But nothing protects, frees and gives meaning more than Christ in us being lived out together.

From Series: "Life Worth Living - Ecclesiastes series"

Like Solomon, we can lose hope in the mess and seeming futility of life: our perspective seeing only the underside of the tapestry. Yet there are glimpses of the top-side. Glorious beauty in what God is weaving together for His glory and it can't help but inspire awe, worship and trust in His purposes through our lives.
