3 May 2020 AM – Ecclesiastes 7 – Ecc20 – Scott Childs
Welcome: Welcome to our Sunday morning online church service.
Introduction: Throughout the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon makes many contrasts using the words “better … than”. We have noted several already. However, here in chapter 7, he gives us a cluster of these contrasting statements. On the first read of them, they may seem backward to your thinking, but as we examine them more closely, I trust you will ponder them and grasp what God is teaching you.
Transition: This morning I want to draw your attention to five pieces of better advice that appear backwards to get us to think.
