Wisdom in Ecclesiastes

Continuing our discussion on wisdom, we turn to the book of Ecclesiastes. Its critical voice finds flaws in the teachings of Proverbs.

Life brings inexplicable challenges. How does one continue to strive for wisdom in the confusion of events that seem beyond our control? When all seems “Hevel”: unclear as if obscured by a veil of smoke, unable to be grasped and held on to. We must accept that the only thing within our control is our attitude in the present, and put our trust in God, that he will one day lift the smoke.
