5 Minute Devotional: Solomon Thought about Life (Ecclesiastes 1:1-11)

Josh RobertsComment

Dear Parents, 

This week we continue our journey through the big story of the Bible and wrap up our time with Solomon by learning about how he thought about the purpose of life and wrote about it in the Book of Ecclesiastes. 

 

(3 minutes) READ Ecclesiastes 1:1-11

Solomon discovered that apart from God, life does not make sense. God created everything, and He gives everything a purpose. Jesus gives us purpose for living. Jesus came so that we might live for Him and have full, meaningful life.

Help your kids find purpose in loving Jesus and living for Him. Remind them that Jesus gives us value and purpose in life.
