Are You Bravely Honest?

treasure-chestOn first reading Ecclesiastes, you may think the tone is entirely pessimistic.

Read Ecclesiastes 12:7-14. Consider that, as a leader, Solomon was being bravely honest.

He told us the truth. Life under the sun can never satisfy us (Ecc 5:10-12 and Ecc 6:7). Laying up treasures for yourself on earth is a poor strategy (Mat 6:19-21).

Solomon’s conclusion is that our best course of action is to set our affection on things above, to live in the Son (Col 3:2).

As a leader, are you bravely honest with yourself and others about where we should place our focus in life?
