    Live Life (Ecclesiastes 9:1-10)
    We return to our study in Ecclesiastes entering into the final destination. In this section of the book the Teacher offers practical points to help you arrive safely at the end of the quest. Practical Point #1 is simply to enjoy this life God has given us. Too often we allow ourselves to grumble, whine and complain about the good and the bad in our lives. The Teacher says life is too short for that. Instead enjoy life as the gift it is and do everything you do with all of your strength.

    In our third offering of meals with Jesus we study the Feeding of the Multitude and Jesus' demonstration of compassion. But the miracle of feeding so many with just five cakes of bread and two fish is that Jesus was showing how He meets our needs when we can possible meet them ourselves. In doing so Jesus points us to how He is the bread of Life and He offers Himself to the world.
