A common way for us to live life is to try to walk a tight rope walk of not being "too bad," but we also don't want the inconvenience of being "too good." But is this the way we ought to live? The result is a constant battle of trying to find some mythical middle ground, it we will destroy ourselves, and others, in the process of that exhaustion, condemnation of self and others, and legalism. There is a better way.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: If life sometimes seems empty and meaningless, you aren't alone. One Preacher in the bible even agrees. He surveys his life's great accomplishments and successes, and sees that ultimately, it's all in vain. So what is the point of living? He concludes that in the end, when we live our lives not simply "under the sun," but "unto the Son," all that is meaningless in life takes on great meaning, even eternal meaning, and gives us much to live and hope for.
