What will truly deliver The Good Life? Can we get there by buying new things? Experiencing new things? Being respected by more people? Accomplishing more feats? Making more money? Most anything we do or say is built on the premise that everyone deserves The Good Life.
The bible doesn’t tell us we shouldn’t search for happiness, but rather that we’re not searching hard enough. In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon tries to find The Good Life in most any way possible. He attempts riches, wisdom, pleasure, accomplishments, respect, and most anything else we could think of–and comes up empty. He discovers that the truest Good Life is not found in things on earth, but in seeing everything in light of eternity.
