ECCLESIASTES 2:10-11 (NIV)
“I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight in all my work, and this was the reward for all my labor. Yet, when I surveyed all that my hands had done, and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun.”
Solomon is helping us understand the source of lasting purpose and joy. That source isn’t found in acquiring more and better “things.” It is only found in a relationship with God!
