Ecclesiastes
EcclesiastesSteve Gregg

In Ecclesiastes 8-12, Steve Gregg examines the themes of mortality, the uncertainty of life, and the importance of seeking God in all aspects of life. He emphasizes the fleeting nature of human accomplishments and the need to enjoy simple pleasures while also keeping in mind the ultimate judgment before God. Gregg also discusses the concept of chance and how it relates to God’s sovereignty, urging listeners to trust in God’s plan rather than relying solely on personal wisdom or strength. In all, he stresses the importance of prioritizing Godliness and seeking fulfillment in Him above all else.
