BE SATISFIED By Warren W. Weirsbe a commentary of Ecclesiastes
This summer I have decided to mix things up a bit. I am joining a ladies bible study. Well, kind of. I won’t be able to meet with the ladies face-to-face for this Bible study. What I can do (and you too!) is study from home and share my responses here at FaithfullyDrivenHearts.com, with you.
If you choose to study along with us (wonderful!) than you will need your own copy of BE SATISFIED as well as your BIBLE. We will be studying one chapter every two weeks. I will be posting the chapter title along with questions to ponder on.
To get us started I thought I would just share the questions from chapter one, page 25-26.
Read Ecclesiastes 1:1-3 and the first chapter of BE SATISFIED.
- How would you describe life in ten to fifteen words?
- Do you know anyone who sees life as meaningless or futile? If so, what reasons might he or she give?
- What are some evidences of despair among people today (perhaps shown on TV, in film, or in behaviors you’ve observed)?
- What are some positive alternatives to the despair that people choose in this life?
- Why did Solomon, who had so much, feel such emptiness in life?
- What advice would you have given Solomon for finding meaning in life?
- Are you satisfied with your life? If not, what do you think would bring you satisfaction?
- What do you think is the main reason some Christians don’t feel “victory” in their everyday lives?
- Do you think the average Christian today feels more or less satisfied than the average Christian thirty years ago? Why?
- How would you compare Solomon’s attitude toward life with what Jesus taught?
Keep in mind, whatever you chose to share will be open to all. I will be sharing what I feel is appropriate, I hope you feel open in doing the same. No matter how much or little you share is entirely up to you. You might not want to share anything at all. And that is OK. Just be sure to keep your own journal of this Bible study for future reflection.
Blessings to you all!
P.S. My response will come in the reply below!
