For the month of May, we are going to give a cursory look at the book of Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes teaches us about the vanity of man’s heart which is not content with his present vocation but always desires future honor and wealth and fame. “What does the worker gain from his toil?” Whatever man seeks apart from God is a vain striving and accomplishes nothing. It is the gift of God for man to enjoy his work. The Christian is content to live the good life of thanksgiving for forgiveness before God and the world.
