(Ecclesiastes 2:18-26) Today we continue our series in the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes. Our guide through the book, the Preacher, meditates on the various frustrations related to our labor (or work) "under the sun". While the Bible is clear that work is good and an essential part of being human, our attitude toward it tends to get distorted in one of two directions: workaholism or apathy. In light of the fuller New Testament picture, those who trust in Christ can have a different approach to work, trusting in the goodness and redeeming hand of God in the midst of work's earthly frustrations.
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”” (Romans 10:14–15)
