Ecclesiastes

Life Under the Sun


In this issue of Israel My Glory, we're looking at the book of Ecclesiastes. The author, King Solomon, learned the most important lesson of his life when he was old and couldn’t go back in time to rectify his mistakes. Our prayer is that these articles will encourage all of us not to waste the days God has given us and to live each one for Him.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, shares an in-depth look at Peter Colón's article, "No Satisfaction (Eccl. 4-6)."
