In our relentless pursuit of happiness, we often chase after conventional markers of success—a high-paying job, a picture-perfect family, social connections, and religious affiliations. However, what if we’ve been looking in all the wrong places?
What Is the Secret of Successful Living?
King Solomon, renowned for his wealth, wisdom, and luxury, embarked on a journey in search of the elusive secret to a fulfilling life. After getting more gold, wives, fine houses, and wisdom than any other man on earth, Solomon discovered wisdom not by having all the answers but by zeroing in on the right questions.
In Russell Stendal’s thoughtful book, The Philosophy of King Solomon: Hidden Wisdom from Ecclesiastes, Stendal asks key questions about life and legacy:
- What’s the greater challenge: prosperity or adversity?
- What is the right attitude toward wealth?
- Where is happiness found?
- Who will inherit your empire when you die?
- What good does it do to build an empire only to watch somebody else inherit your kingdom to dismantle it?
What Is the Secret to Happiness?
King Solomon discovered the secret. The book of Ecclesiastes is not as much a book of lament for himself as it is a message for the people, for all of humanity. Having attained it all, King Solomon extends an invitation to his listeners, urging them to arrive at their own conclusions.
He shares his experience of storing up treasures in heaven, finding happiness, and collecting treasures that surpass even those of them who gathered all things under the sun. He illustrates how these treasures, far surpassing earthly possessions, become our enduring legacy.
The Philosophy of King Solomon explores Solomon’s wisdom, the folly of man’s ways, and the still-unfolding prophecy in the rich book of Ecclesiastes.
