Ecclesiastes 6:12; 12:13

The lessons in Ecclesiastes show us that trying to understand what’s good and right can be tough if we don’t have faith in God. This is different from the common idea today that being sincere in any religion is a good thing. Not believing in God can create problems in society because there’s no firm basis for what’s right or wrong. The solution is to respect God and follow His rules. This brings healing and fulfillment, underlining that we should rely on God’s love and greatness rather than trying to make things right all by ourselves.
