2021 THEME: Life on the Edge
Series: Life Matters
TITLE: The Hole
Scripture: Eccl. 5: 8 – 6:12
“Our hearts are restless, O God, until they find their rest in you.” Augustine
THE HOLE EXPOSED
“I looked at life from both sides now/From give and take and still somehow/It’s love’s illusions that I recall/I really don’t know love at all.” That song is a song about (futility).
It is very easy to get (envious) of what others have. Envy can lead to a stronger emotion called (jealousy). Then the (disquiet) kicks in. The feeling of (“It’s not fair”) follows. The feeling of (dissatisfaction) becomes real, as does the feeling of (“I want more”).
Another downer from Solomon: (failure) is a real possibility.
THE HOLE FILLED
“Things fall apart; the center cannot hold.” William Butler Yeats
“The unexamined life is not worth living.” Plato
Three truths we must come to grip with:
1. God is (sovereign)- (v.10a)
2. We (are not)- (v.10b)
3. Disputing those is a (waste of time)- (v.11)
