Noon Q & A
The author of Ecclesiastes (traditionally thought to be Solomon) enjoyed power, wealth and access to all of life’s pursuits and pleasures. After experiencing a full measure of life “under the sun”, he declares it all to be futile and unsatisfying. Only as he lives “above the sun” – with an eye toward God – does life become meaningful and fulfilling. Ultimate satisfaction comes not from the good things of life but from the Giver of Life, the one we are to fear, honor and obey.
