Bible Passage: Ecclesiastes 1:12-2:16
Part 2 of the Message of Ecclesiastes–The Teacher’s Frustrating Journey: “Where Is Meaning to Be Found?” — With the Age of Enlightenment and its scientific and rational approach to knowledge came the conviction that humanity would come of age and throw off its superstitious past and live in the bright sunlight of a new world.

Our knowledge of the world must go beyond our observations and must include our intuitions, which ultimately point beyond themselves to the God who made us.
