On Sunday, August 11 (and throughout that week if your group meets on a different day), our Gospel Groups will be studying Ecclesiastes 1-2. Below are some questions for you to think about as you read the passage in preparation for your group. Be in prayer and allow the Holy Spirit to teach you from this passage. Then be ready to share what God is teaching you with your group.
What are some ways people try to find fulfillment apart from God?
How does the author describe life?
Am I pursuing temporal (“under the sun”) things or eternal things?
What are the three things in Ecclesiastes 2:1-3 that Solomon tried and they proved futile?
Have you seen pleasures of this world lead people astray?
What does Ecclesiastes 2:4-11, 18-23 teach us?
What was Jesus’ goal in life?
Is your focus self or Jesus? How will you pursue God this week? What are practical steps you will take?
