Family Talking Points

Ecclesiastes means “Preacher” and is believed to be written by Solomon. 

  • Solomon was considered to be very wise and went on a quest to find what would make him happy.  We find his discoveries in Ecclesiastes.
  • Solomon found that his happiness changed depending on his circumstances.  He could not find true happiness in what life had to offer.
  • God is the only place we can find true contentment.  Life changes, but God is always the same.
  • Solomon felt empty and tried to fill that emptiness with money, pleasure and success. 
  • God is the only way to fill the emptiness
  • Many people try to build their success for their own glory. Their glory is temporary.
  • When we work as unto the Lord, we can see it as a gift.
  • Death will happen for all.  But it does not make life worthless.
  • God is forever and believers can be happy in knowing there is life in Christ.
  • We should live life knowing it will end.  With that, “Fear God and keep His commands”
  • As a believer, live your life knowing one day you will get to spend eternity with Him.

Discuss Together

When you are finished, read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.

  • Why is two better than one?
  • Has there ever been a time in your life when it was better to have two or more and not just you alone?
