Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 Discussion



 
  • Tim legarie on Ecclesiastes 2
    As a little child filled with joy laughter and excitement to meet Jesus Christ our saviour and king.

    We wait in anticipation with our lanterns filled with his light to guide others to his path.It weaves and turns yet becomes straight when our hearts and minds are focused on his presence.

    Pureness ,and holiness are his and his alone! We can only attempt to reach at the hem of his gown,and that he realise an angel to tend to our afflictions and doubts.As he blesses us each day with his prescense in our hearts ,and souls.Thank you father for all you have done for us in Jesus name amen
  • Brenda streeter on Ecclesiastes 2
    I think that king Solomon, was one of the wisest king that lived for his time and today...because his. Wisdom is still spoken of. maybe if we get some of that godly wisdom in the state capitol and white house to day,.the earth would not be as bad as it is. I believe there would be a lot peace among nation...I pray for our president, joe Biden..that the lord speak to his heart and mind, guide him and his cabinet.
  • Martin Maxwell - in Reply on Ecclesiastes 2
    Solomon may have been too wise for his own good; he was no prize. He spent the latter 20 years of his reign worshiping strange gods and courting thousands of women. He singlehandedly divided Israel into two kingdoms. He is associated with the occult so much so that the Freemasons pay homage to him in the forward of their Bible. This, the so called wisest man that ever lived, was off the rails.
  • Church on Ecclesiastes 2
    yes everything is vanity in this world.
  • Daisy on Ecclesiastes 2
    I think we forget that all things we have here in this world are borrowed. Nothing truly belongs to me or anyone. Once we die, we leave it all behind. We should never be attached to anything in this life. It will all soon be left behind.
  • Carlene Foster on Ecclesiastes 2
    What i have just learn in Ecclesiastic make want to be humble. Whatever you're bless with in life we should remain humble because all things in life is vanity and when we forget the keeper of them all it vex the Holy Spirit.
  • Vanessa on Ecclesiastes 2
    seeking pleasure of the things you possess of this world, an glorify in riches means nothing, it will all be someones elses when we leave, nothing here really matters except glorifying God the father and be thankful to him for sending his son to die on a cross so we can have a life with him forever, that's our true treasure and the one I seek, we are free from the burdens of this life. Amen!
  • Love this book. It has many good insights in the world...
  • Verse 11~Solomon was the richest and wisest man of his time and he came to the conclusion that lasting happiness and fulfillment is not found in seeking a life of materialism.
  • There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God.

    To have what you need and take satisfaction in your work and achievements is of God. Striving to have more than everyone else is totally unnecessary and vain.
  • There is nothing new under the sun. All our labor
  • Verse 24 shows that the only reason we can enjoy the things that bring us pleasure in life is because God allows us to enjoy them. We should truly be grateful to God and live our lives in a way that shows that we appreciate all the good that Jehovah God has done for us.
  • GeraldineCole on Ecclesiastes 2
    All is well when we have Jesus as our leader all we have to do is obey his word that is the only truth then he will teach us how to treat our follow man and live In this world without being of the World when we walk and talk and pray and study the bible life is not hard we make it hard by the way we see things I our minds walk not in your understanding talk with Jesus before u do things Amen
  • Kathi on Ecclesiastes 2
    What was missing was eternity with all Heaven. Life on earth without God is not really life at all but certain emptiness and death. Hopeless and helpless till Jesus...................................
  • Dean COOPER on Ecclesiastes 2
    Gives a lot to consider,.He's at the crossroads, and like many of us.chooses the wrong path, lots of lessons here if we don't think he was just a fool after all it could happen to me also to think not is also vanity
  • Odetta anese hines on Ecclesiastes 2
    This has been another great lesson.I enjoy the trivial questions.
  • Thank my lord Jesus I found this and got read it tonight I needed this it has help me,the only hope for all man kind.....!
  • Geraldine cole on Ecclesiastes 2
    What I got out of this is u can have everything u need on the earth and if u do not have Jesus U don 't have Nothing so what we need to do first is to accept Jesus first then he will give u you what u stand in need of praise The Lord Amen
  • Whatever we do in the world is vanity.
  • We were made to find satisfaction in wholesome work. Even in the direst of circumstances, you can enjoy a measure of satisfaction in life right now from working diligently and honestly.
  • Mary adamo on Ecclesiastes 2
    Glory, praise and honour to our Lord and God. It 's written that the duty of man is to seek first the kingdom of God and all his righteousness. In all our ways to acknowledge him for he is the true and living God, the. Great I am. Through his son the Lord Jesus Christ we have been redeemed and reconciled unto God. King. Solomon who wrote this chapter concludes with all his riches and wisdom without God, all he had was vanity and vexation of spirit.
  • Godly wisdom, which brings joy, is given to a man who is good before Jehovah God. It is impossible to gain this wisdom without having a good relationship with God
  • Kaneng on Ecclesiastes 2
    This is so true.
  • Colette on Ecclesiastes 2
    We are all chasing after the wind this is human The real essence of life is to acquire divine wisdom live by these principles and enjoy what God has already blessed us with Don t amass or seek for what will add no value to your life and instead distress you
  • this man is simply telling us that many at times we worrying of earthly things that are worthless rather than focusing on the coming of Christ
  • TRACIE on Ecclesiastes 2
    This chapter is about how the King hates the fact that even though he has built up a great kingdom..he has nothing to show for what God has given him..Wisdom and knowledge..he has not honored God so he hates himself for it...We will die like the fool if the wisdom that God has given does not show itself..or give benefit.. or give respect to God. The wise man is only wise if it makes a DIFFERENCE....AND praise be given to God who has given that wisdom
  • ecclesiastes 2 : it's a reminder for all of us that no matter what we have or what we want in the end it's all vanity, when really all we need while here on this earth is LOVE , food and clothing , the latter two of the three will be supplied the first you as a human must make the choice ... will you Love everyone as CHRIST loves you or will you pick and choose who u will Love.
  • Prince Tuck on Ecclesiastes 2:14
    Re: Eccl 2:14

    Another divine reminder that the Heretofore is preparation for the Hereafter (Death is only the beginning)... Wisdom is Divine Guidance, rewarded in both the Heretofore and the Hereafter! So capitalise! Because Death doesn't discriminate. All that's left is Piety.
  • Ngel Ukoh on Ecclesiastes 2
    Ecclesiastes 2 made me to understand that we should not hold the things of this world very tied, so that when the time comes it will be easy to leave them without pain, because everything under the earth is vanity upon vanity.
  • Joseph G. Conteh on Ecclesiastes 2
    The economics' theory of unlimited wants of human beings is being drawn from Ecclesiastes. One may desire something, the moment s(he) gets that, then another desire emerges. One is never satisfied with whatever s(he) has, does, sees, hears, feels etc... Therefore one needs to have a neutralizing point which is the Lord God who should be allowed to reign in our lives. We need to care for one another and avoid gathering riches which may be inherited by our enemies.
