Sermon: “Chasing After Wealth” from Dan Mitchum

Dan Mitchum - July 2, 2023

In God's Hands

Life isn’t fair. That’s one of the most frustrating aspects of life under the sun. If life were fair, then being good would guarantee a good life. If life were fair, then obeying God would result in Him pouring His blessings upon us. But Solomon, the author of Ecclesiastes, tells us that life doesn’t always work that way. Sometimes bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. The good news is that believers are in the hands of God. And that means we can trust Him when life is unfair. Charles Swindoll put it this way: “Being in the hand of God is not synonymous with or a guarantee for being economically prosperous, physically healthy, protected from pain, enjoying a trouble-free occupation, and having everyone smile and appreciate us. But what does help is the knowledge that behind whatever happens is a God who cares, who hasn’t lost a handle on the controls.”

From Series: "Ecclesiastes: The Secret of Life"

This week we start a new sermon series on one of the most puzzling books of the Bible. Ecclesiastes was written by a man searching for the secret of life.

He denied himself nothing his eyes desired and refused his heart no pleasure. And what did he discover?
