R.C. Sproul explains that everything we do has eternal significance. He demonstrates how God teaches us more in our suffering than in happy times. Dr. Sproul concludes this series with a charge to fear God and keep His commandments. He says that believers would do well to learn from Solomon’s message in Ecclesiastes because, although we live in an age of change, the important matters of the heart remain largely the same from generation to generation.
“Utterly meaningless! Everything is meaningless” (Ecclesiastes 1:2). Ecclesiastes was written long ago, but the teacher’s message couldn’t be more relevant. His ancient voice of despair is echoed by countless intellectual and cultural elites in our era. Into this darkness the beauty of truth shines. In Themes from Ecclesiastes, Dr. Sproul lays open this difficult book, showing that while life “under the sun” is meaningless, life under God is truly and deeply meaningful. The conclusion? Right now counts forever.
