The book of Ecclesiastes is unique and provocative as it states repeatedly that everything is meaningless (“vanity”) without a proper focus on God. The book reveals the necessity of fearing God in a fallen, confusing and frustrating world. This “final dance” of the wisdom literature shows us a man who lived through these challenges and came out on the other side with a wiser, more seasoned perspective. Ultimately, the great truth of Ecclesiastes lies in the acknowledgement of God’s ever-present hand in our lives.
