It's Good To Be Alive
Passage: Ecclesiastes 8:16–9:10
So far through the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon has wrestled with us on thoughts of life and death. “Why do things happen to us they way they do?” In all things, Solomon’s end goal is for us to fear God. In these verses, he shows us that God really wants us to be happy and to enjoy the life He has gifted us with.
