The Book of Ecclesiastes: A book that shows us—amidst the fleetingness of life—to embrace contentment in the present. Ecclesiastes highlights the absurdities of life. The Teacher starts with “Everything is meaningless, completely meaningless!” The word translated as “meaningless” is the Hebrew word hevel. This literally translates into “vapor” or “breath,” indicating the idea of everything being “fleeting.” There is a form of comfort here: Ecclesiastes invites us, knowing that everything is fleeting, to find enjoyment in the small things around us and release anxious worries of the future from our grasp.

The Book of Ecclesiastes opens with a startling declaration: “Everything is meaningless” (Eccl. 1:2). One of the Wisdom books of Scripture, Ecclesiastes moves us to ponder the complexities of life and of death—of the joyous and lamentable. We can acknowledge the fleetingness of life, and embrace the present moment for all its potential joys, sorrows, profundity, and mundanity. In the face of impermanence, Ecclesiastes reminds us that the only thing that remains eternal is God.

And it is in God that we place our trust; we take each day as it comes, celebrating the blessings we have been given and allowing the Spirit to guide us through whatever is to come. Through ephemeral and wispy imagery we reflect the elusiveness of the world as well as the life-giving and transformative power of the breath of God. May we experience the wisdom of Ecclesiastes and its quiet contemplation.
