Ecclesiastes is part of the wisdom literature of the Bible. What is wisdom? Wisdom is what you need to navigate life well. Wisdom is more than being smart, accomplished or moral. Wisdom is the ability to navigate life well in the majority of life situations where the moral rules don’t apply. Wisdom is being able to see now how you will feel about a situation later.

The wisdom of Ecclesiastes is ancient wisdom. It was written some 1000 years before the birth of Jesus Christ. Nonetheless, this ancient wisdom has surprising relevance for today, offering wisdom on topics such as pleasure, riches, accomplishment, aging and death. What we want to do is look at the ancient wisdom of Ecclesiastes and see what it offers for living today.
