Have you ever asked yourself: How do I find meaning, joy, and purpose in my life?
- Is it financial success? A fat bank account, good credit, and frequent flier miles?
- Is it wisdom? Self-help books, podcasts, and heady blog posts?
- Is it pleasure? Happy hours, suburbia block parties, and bounce houses?

He penned the Old Testament wisdom book of Ecclesiastes and using his honest, gritty realism he came to one conclusion: Apart from God, there can be no true meaning, joy, or purpose. Everything we chase after is nothing but smoke.
