As Pastor David mentioned last week, the teacher in our Bible passage gives us a wide scope of worldly wisdom. And in his worldly wisdom, he says life is vain, or even meaningless. But then he says, despite his pointless and confusing life, it’s still better to be together.
So for us, as Christians who don’t believe that life is meaningless, how much more important is it for us to seek community and teamwork? So this writer’s worldly wisdom is even more valuable for us because we believe its effects will last forever.
