Transcript

  • 1. Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 “ Good Wine - Glad Hearts”
  • 2. Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 “ Good Wine – Glad Hearts” “ So I reflected on all this and concluded that the righteous and the wise and what they do are in God’s hands, but no man knows whether love or hate awaits him”.
  • 3. Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 “ Good Wine – Glad Hearts” “ All share a common destiny- the righteous and the wicked, the good and the bad, the clean and the unclean, those who offer sacrifices and those who do not. As it is with the good man, so with the sinner; as it is with those who take oaths, so with those who are afraid to take them. This is the evil in everything that happens under the sun: The same destiny overtakes all”.
  • 4. Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 “ Good Wine – Glad Hearts “ The hearts of men, moreover, are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterward they join the dead. Anyone who is among the living has hope- even a live dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing; they have no further reward, and even the memory of them is forgotten. Their love, their hate and their jealousy have long since vanished; never again will they have a part in anything that happens under the sun.”
  • 5. Ecclesiastes 9:1-9 “ Good Wine – Glad Hearts” “ Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favours what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun- all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labour under the sun”.
