Reflections on Ecclesiastes 4-6

The writer continues his discussion of vanity and calls us to fear God.

  • Fear God – Fearing God means we come before him to listen to him, rather than to make rash promises that we will not keep. Do you come into his presence on Sundays to listen?  Are you prone to make rash promises?
  • God’s gift of enjoyment – Again the writer reminds us that enjoyment of what God gives us comes from God (5:18-20). What are some reasons people might not enjoy what they have?  Are any of these reasons true in your life?  In what ways has God given you the ability to enjoy what you have?
