Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/14/2022

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Ecclesiastes

Key Text: Ecclesiastes 2:12-26

Description:  

Avg Guy: Why is it that so few people find any lasting enjoyment out of life? …If everyone is searching for fulfillment and satisfaction, then why do so few find them? Where are they hiding?? Who holds the key or possesses the secret??? I need to know!

SBC Host: Those are some deep questions. …and you’re not the first to ask them. This sermon may help.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Ecclesiastes in which we see how Solomon’s journey in asking these questions took him to the depths of despair but didn’t leave him there.

He found a path that showed him how fulfillment and satisfaction can still be found in this life.

… But the problem was not that Solomon was heading in the wrong direction, it was that he wasn’t even on the correct road!
