When Things Are Beyond Our Control

Ecclesiastes 9:11-18

Pastor Doug Helms


  1. What does the wise man of Ecclesiastes mean when he says, “time and chance happen to them all”? Is the world ruled by fate?

  2. Are all accidents preventable? Why or why not? Should we try to prevent accidents?

  3. According to our text, what can we do to prepare for the evil day?

  4. Does wisdom always bring about our desired end? Why or why not? If not, does that make wisdom useless?

  5. Where does wisdom find it’s perfect fulfillment?
