The Pursuit of Self-Sufficiency
Self-
Sufficiency is
Meaningless
Can you see
God in this?
In Christ,
‘doing life’ is
worth it!
Ecclesiastes 9:11-12
Ecclesiastes 9:11
11 I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.
Ecclesiastes 9:12
12 Moreover, no one knows when their
hour will come:
As fish are caught in a cruel net,
or birds are taken in a snare,
so people are trapped by evil times
that fall unexpectedly upon them.
First Point
