Empty Pleasure – Ecclesiastes 2:1-11

Empty Pleasure – Ecclesiastes 2:1-11

If you had the resources and power to do whatever you wanted, would you be satisfied in life? When it comes to the meaning of life, many look for that meaning in pleasure; e.g. “Life is short, so enjoy it while you can.” But can pleasure make our lives meaningful? In this passage Solomon puts it to the test. He examines the promise of pleasure, uncovers the problem of pleasure, and that leads us to the source of real satisfaction.
