The Hole

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



“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.



“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)
