How do I find meaning and purpose in life?
Most of us face this question sooner or later, no matter how popular, rich, or successful we might be. Money can't buy meaning in life. Education can't teach it to you. Possessions don't come with it. You can't find it by getting married, nor by staying single. Losing weight doesn't help, nor does meditation. Religion won't fix the problem, nor will committing suicide.
But life isn't hopeless or meaningless. You can find answers. Welcome to the book of Ecclesiastes.
Solomon was one of the few people in history who had the resources to try out everything that life offers. He had money. He had power. He had possessions. He had knowledge and wisdom. He had women. He had his own private musicians. He even tried worshiping idols. If he wanted something, he bought it or got it some other way. But he didn't have meaning or purpose in life, and he wanted it.
He wanted it badly.
The book of Ecclesiastes is Solomon's diary of the process he went through to try to find meaning in life. You will be surprised at what he all tried and what didn't work. And you may be surprised at his conclusion.
