Man World, Wise God – Eccelsiastes 9. RBT Notes, 11th April




1.    Are vv.1-6 an invitation to despair? If not, how do these verses help to you live for Jesus?

2.   Enjoyment and hard work are gifts from God (vv.7-12) – what more can you throw yourself into with the energy and opportunities God gives you?

3.   vv.13-18: wisdom is fragile, and easily crushed. Who was the wisest man who ever lived, and what became of Him? What does that say about how fragile your wisdom is, as well as how strong?


A Prayer to Pray

Thankyou, Father, for Wise King Jesus. May His Spirit teach me to laugh, to labour, to enjoy, to treasure, as well as to let go. In a mad world, teach me wisdom. Amen.
