Christian leaders sometimes get caught in the trap of seeking success separate from a growing relationship with God but sooner or later they reach the conclusion that humanism and materialism provide incomplete counsel for decision making and life goals. Read Ecclesiastes 1:1-11.
As we start into a new book of the Bible it is wise to get an overview of the book’s content and the leadership principles it contains. The book of Ecclesiastes was written by King Solomon of Israel. It was written approximately 950 years before Jesus was born. Even today, as historians look at human history, Solomon is recognized as the wisest, richest, and one of the most powerful men to have led any nation. The nation experienced almost complete peace during his 40-year reign as king and leaders of other powerful nations came from great distances just to sit under his teaching. Solomon’s leadership knew success at a level most of us will never experience. His discoveries concerning sources of fulfillment are addressed in the book of Ecclesiastes.
