  1. every time the Teacher talks about a certain worldview, he draws a conclusion back to live for those gifts of God: friendship, family, food, sunny days (instead of doing too much to the point you stress and stuff)

    I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live. That each of them may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all their toil—this is the gift of God – Ecc 3:12-13

    live your life but live it for God, you mustn’t worry about anything else. God bless.

  2. Ecclesiastes recently became my favourite book – about six months ago. I’m 47 years old, and I realize more than ever before that death is coming for all of us, and everything we do is meaningless. So I take pleasure in my children and my family and a good meal, an occasional beer, conversation with a friend, a good song. I enjoy these things for God’s glory, and do all I can to live life for Him.

    • Why would you want to earn money with the Bible?

      We can learn much from the story of Jesus visiting the Temple when the Pharisees were selling “offers” in it.

    • +Oshea Faustus The reason the moneyhandlers were at fault was because they were cheating people out of their money and turning the temple into a cheater’s market. Also, they would have to sell the posters in order to make them in the first place. That’s why Bibles are sold.

    • +Oshea Faustus Yes it is the Bible on display, but it is also art that took time and effort to produce. God has inspired these talented artisans to not only share the Word but also the share their art. Why shouldn’t they sell their work, if they so choose? The Bible is available to everyone. And with the internet and apps, you can get most versions of the Bible free. Their art is theirs. They have produce beautiful and rich tapestries that have value!

      Think about this, every pastor earns money from the Bible! When we couple your skill set with the Word, which we are supposed to do, we are not only able to bless and prosper others (emotionally, spiritually, and financially), but we can prosper as well. God bless!

    • John 2:14-17New International Version (NIV)

      14 In the temple courts he found people selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. 15 So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple courts, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. 16 To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! Stop turning my Father’s house into a market!”

      The key here is that they were literally in the temple selling, so within that context it’s different from your proposed meaning. Binding, printing and distributing books is not free.

  3. WHERE IS THE POINT OF RETURN JUST AS THE MAIN CHARACTER STATE THAT BESIDES ALL THE MISTAKES AND WRONG PATHS..

    THE ONLY PATH OF JOY AND SALVATION.. ITS THE LORD..

    WHERE IS THE VERSE THAT SHOWS THE CONVERTION OF THE MAIN CHARACTER..

    AND THE ENDLESS MERCY FROM OUR GOD TO FORGIVE SINS AND RESTORE OUR FAITH..

    ARE U READING THE SAME BOOK AS I AM???

  4. The two salient themes of this book as identified are time and death. Of all things men wish to control, these are the furthest out of our reach. There’s technology to postpone death but not actually avoid it forever. Most amazing revelation is that God controls time and has conquered death. Does this not clear the way for Man to see Him in a new light? He holds the very thing that defeats us.

  5. This guys with all do respect don’t reveal correctly all the books they covered! They give u they point of view witch in some of the books are right! but in some of the book’s they give u a lame revelation of what the books really are teaching’s! like this 1ne right here.. N 2nd Samuel very lame..So Just fallow Jesus Christ and not the teachings of men like this 1ne..

  6. the originator of Ecclesiastes is Jesus Christ before he was send down by the Father from Heaven.. For Jesus was also called Teacher and Son of David..
