With disillusionment and despair casting ever-enlarging shadows across his path, Solomon begins to intensify his reactions in Ecclesiastes 2:12-26.
King Solomon lived out his dreams. He enjoyed every pleasure the world had to offer, and it came up short. Solomon discovered living a life devoted to pleasure is meaningless.
The Christian life is tough to get started because it’s not just a new way of thinking it’s a whole new way of living. It’s like moving from darkness to light; from being self-centred to being like Christ. But as you persevere, the journey keeps getting better and better.
Solomon fell for the sensual lure of self-gratification. He landed in the pit of emptiness.
