The Search for Meaning - Riches

Preacher: Jim de Witte
Bible Passage: Ecclesiastes 5:8-6:9

As we pick up our series 'The Search for Meaning', we are reminded that there are incredible similarities between Israel under Soloman and Australia today. Despite our medical and technological advances, people still look for pleasure in all the same places. The most common place, then and now, is searching for satisfaction in getting rich. In our passage today, Soloman gives us five reasons for not trusting in our money. But there is a surprising twist at the end. He says, 'Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work - this is a gift of God.' (Ecclesiastes 5:19). The lesson is that we can find enjoyment in our work and also in the living God, who has given. We need to learn how to keep both views on riches in healthy tension.
