Reflection Guide – Ecclesiastes 3:1-15

Ecclesiastes 3:1-15 – Losing Your Illusions

Download: Sermon Summary and Guide for Reflection

I walked away from Sunday morning with a tangible sense of God’s providential care.  Out of all the things I could be experiencing right now, I am going through what I am going through.  And when I consider what other years, decades and centuries I could be in and all the other places around the world I could be, I felt really, really small and powerless and God started to seem like he really is in charge of it all:

I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him.  Ecclesiastes 3:14

I was reminded that I am an awful judge of what is best for me (or others) and that joy comes not from life making sense or lining up to provide comfort.  Joy comes through Christ.  And he is made much of by the struggles that we have in life.  May Christ become more precious to you as you reflect on the sermon from Sunday using this guide.
