I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty, From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead, I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Universal Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, And the life everlasting.
Amen

Scripture Reading | Ecclesiastes 2:12-17

The Vanity of Living Wisely

12 So I turned to consider wisdom and madness and folly. For what can the man do who comes after the king? Only what has already been done. 13 Then I saw that there is more gain in wisdom than in folly, as there is more gain in light than in darkness. 14 The wise person has his eyes in his head, but the fool walks in darkness. And yet I perceived that the same event happens to all of them. 15 Then I said in my heart, “What happens to the fool will happen to me also. Why then have I been so very wise?” And I said in my heart that this also is vanity. 16 For of the wise as of the fool there is no enduring remembrance, seeing that in the days to come all will have been long forgotten. How the wise dies just like the fool! 17 So I hated life, because what is done under the sun was grievous to me, for all is vanity and a striving after wind.

 

Sermon | “The Vanity of Wisdom, Again”

Scripture Reading | Ecclesiastes 2:12-17

Central Truth: “Christ has become for us wisdom and life by going through the darkness of death.”

Summary: After exploring the vanity of toil, wisdom, and self-indulgence, he comes back to wisdom. He contrasts it to the madness and folly of self-indulgence. He says that there is greater gain with wisdom, but that gain only goes so far, since death will come for both the wise and the fool. But Christ has become the true wisdom, the Light of the World, for us by going through darkness of sin and death for us.

Points:
  1. The Revisiting of Wisdom
  2. The Result of Wisdom
  3. The Redemption of Wisdom

Reflective Questions:

  1. What gain is there to wisdom?
  2. How do you feel about death as the great equalizer?
  3.  How does Christ redeem wisdom for us?

Quotes:

“As the wisest and wealthiest king, he is in a unique position to do this. Who could ever add anything to the experience of someone like Solomon? He is the ultimate test case. If he cannot find the meaning of life, who can? What hope is there for anyone to answer these questions?” -Philip Ryken
