Happy Times (3)

Most people believe that the book of Ecclesiastes was written by King Solomon. He was a very wealthy man who had everything he could want. In the book of Ecclesiastes, Solomon talks about his search for what is really important in life.

Many people today are like Solomon. They are searching for things that make them happy. But often they do not search in the right places. They want to find happiness through drugs, alcohol, wealth or high-paying jobs. True happiness can only be found through following God and His Word. And Solomon adds in our verses for today that “it is better to be happy with what you have than to always want more and more” (verse 9a).

We can find happiness if we learn to be content with what we have. We should not always be trying to find happiness through more money and things. Thank God for what He has given you and ask Him to help you be satisfied.
