Ecclesiastes IV

What Worth Enduring?

Goal: Understand that unfairness, oppress, and evil happen in this world. Learn to view and endure these circumstances in God’s way
Key Passage: If you see the poor oppressed in a district, and justice and rights denied, do not be surprised at such things; for one official is eyed by a higher one, and over them both are others higher still.
1)    Have you seen any of the unfairness / oppression / ironic matter? What is your thought on Solomon’s saying in Eccl 4:2-3?
2)    How do you face these matters in life? Share your own opinion (you can draw inspiration from chp 4-5)
Key Take Away:
a.    God will bring into judgment, both the righteous and the wicked
b.    Success, wealth, popularity are futile. c.    Two is better than one – Treasure relationship – spouse, b/s,
family, friendship.
•    Don’t fret/upset on evil/unfairness. Bring it to God and turn it into urge to seek God and help people.
•    Do something to treasure your relationship (e.g., with spouse, b/s)
Pray with a b/s for each other o Express appreciation and encouragement
