 Message Mate: Grey Hairs, Fewer Teeth, Yet a Big Smile | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Nov 15, 2013 - Nov 19, 2013 Ecclesiastes 12:1-8 This ancient journal has taken us from the energetic vitality of youth, through the disillusionment and cynicism of middle age, and now right up to the grave. We have entered into the writer's struggles, we have felt the sting of his frustrations, we have nodded in agreement with many of his cries of exasperation, and now we sigh alongside Solomon as he describes the reality of growing older. But let's not miss his point! Solomon stated his thesis at the beginning (Eccl. 12:1) and at the end (12:6) of this very eloquent paragraph.

 Enjoying Life Now, Not Later, Part 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Nov 12, 2013 - Nov 14, 2013 Ecclesiastes 11:7-12:1 Many people make the mistake of indefinitely putting off the enjoyment of life, almost as if the pleasure of living is something to be done once people are up in years. They spend their energy and time building toward some distant day when they can sit back, relax, smile on life, and finally enjoy it. But nowhere does Scripture urge us to embrace such a philosophy and certainly not in this ancient book of realism and wisdom named Ecclesiastes.

 Be Bullish! Part 3 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Nov 7, 2013 - Nov 11, 2013 Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 Interestingly, the older we get the more cautious we become. With deliberate and careful concern, we study before we step, we ponder before we leap, we hesitate before we move out into the open. If we're not careful, we replace the risks of faith with a methodical, almost tedious lifestyle that borders on boredom. But is that what God wants of us? Must growing old be synonymous with an overly cautious mentality? Not if we take to heart these first six verses in Ecclesiastes 11! Living on the Ragged Edge: Coming to Terms with Reality read more

 Message Mate: A Fool’s Portrait | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Nov 4, 2013 - Nov 6, 2013 Ecclesiastes 10:12-20 When Scripture paints a life, the Spirit of God never overlooks the blemishes, the scars, or any other imperfection. The Divine Artist does not flatter His subjects. Ecclesiastes 10 is a case in point. Having established indisputable evidence that wisdom is the only way to fly, Solomon placed folly and foolishness alongside wisdom to highlight the contrast. Fools do not listen or learn, and they cannot hide the truth from anyone. Fools are known as such by the public. Living on the Ragged Edge: Coming to Terms with Reality read more

 Message Mate: Be Sensible! | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 30, 2013 - Nov 1, 2013 Ecclesiastes 10:1-11 The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes had completed his search for meaning in the endless halls of humanism. And he found nothing but futility, nothing that satisfies, and nothing of substance. With all that behind him, Solomon calmly and logically began to build a case for living life wisely instead of foolishly. If we didn't know better, we'd be tempted to think these verses had been lifted from the book of Proverbs. Living on the Ragged Edge: Coming to Terms with Reality read more

 Message Mate: An Objective View of the Rat Race | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 28, 2013 - Oct 29, 2013 Ecclesiastes 9:11-18 We all need an objective view of the rat race we live in! Many of our lives can be summed up in three words: hurry, worry, and bury. Thankfully, Solomon's ancient journal that God has preserved as the book of Ecclesiastes tells us to come to terms with reality and, with God's help, enjoy life! This God-inspired book encourages us to squeeze every enjoyment out of life now, while we still have time! Living on the Ragged Edge: Coming to Terms with Reality read more

 Message Mate: Have a Blast While You Last! | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 23, 2013 - Oct 25, 2013 Ecclesiastes 9:1-10 Solomon pulled out all the stops in this section of his journal. With bold strokes of his pen, he declared some of the inevitable, inescapable realities in life. Solomon hammered away at man-made philosophies of life that had failed to provide meaning and fulfilment. Following such brash assertions, he turned to the reader and offered counsel on how to conduct his or her life. In chapter 9, Solomon argued that human beings must accept God's sovereignty and find meaning in relationship with Him. Living on the Ragged Edge: Coming to Terms with Reality read more

 Message Mate: Mysteries That Defy Explanation | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 18, 2013 - Oct 22, 2013 Ecclesiastes 8:10-17 Just in case you haven't noticed, God operates in the realm of mystery. His wisdom is not based on human logic or human knowledge. When we forget that other-worldly nature of God's wisdom, frankly, we're headed for trouble. As we have learned in previous messages, we cannot get God's wisdom through academic pursuit. We can't go to school and earn a degree in God's wisdom. Our God is profoundly deep and mysterious, and His thoughts and ways are far beyond our ability to comprehend.

 Message Mate: The Qualities of a Good Boss | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 15, 2013 - Oct 17, 2013 Ecclesiastes 8:1-9 Wisdom. This one word describes the theme of the second half of Solomon's memoirs in the book of Ecclesiastes. The terms wise and wisdom appear more than thirty times in the last six chapters, and the concept is interwoven through most of the paragraphs…sometimes in a subtle manner, other times boldly. In the previous message, we discovered some of the benefits that come our way when we operate our lives according to wisdom: balance, strength, and insight.

 Message Mate: Putting Wisdom to Work | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 10, 2013 - Oct 14, 2013 Ecclesiastes 7:15-29 By the second half of Ecclesiastes 7, Solomon started to get a little better perspective on life. As a result, his counsel took on a whole new style. The dark clouds of despair and hopelessness broke, thanks to the hope that wisdom brought. Instead of cold, sarcastic cynicism, Solomon's words evidenced a greater depth of caring, understanding, and insight. In the seventh chapter, each verse drips with rich and rare wisdom…the kind of counsel we get so little of in our world of human advice.

 Message Mate: Wise Words for Busy People | File Type: application/pdf | Duration: Unknown

Oct 7, 2013 - Oct 9, 2013 Ecclesiastes 7:1-14 We've reached the halfway point in Solomon's journal. By now we have a pretty good handle on the man's mental perspective as well as his method of pursuit. But something has been conspicuous by its absence—wisdom. This comes as a surprise because Solomon had considerable, God-given wisdom. That's true except for a strange period in his life when he tossed restraint to the wind and acted out a role altogether unusual for a man of his heritage, his position, and his stature.
