Sometimes marriage, work, investments, family, friendships turn out to be a bust, not a blessing. If you were smart and rich maybe it would be easier, better, and make more sense. The Teacher says, “Think again, buddy. I had those advantages and still scratched my head over the puzzling dead ends of life.”
But along the way we should be keeping our eyes on Jesus, not corporate success or personal prosperity. When we live for him, then we can “find enjoyment” (2:24) and enjoy peace.
- Ecclesiastes 2:1 - 26
