    Dr. Wood shows his listeners that life is not fair as we know it, he uses this passage to show that Solomon wants people to live above this world.

    Solomon is troubled by the unfairness of life. But he was the king - why didn't he just legislate away injustice and punish all the wrong-doers and give away some his vast wealth to feed the poor? Why wouldn't that work?

Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy, that I was culturally deprived. Then they told me ...read more

    – Life is not fair. God is. – Philip Yancey (Disappointment With God)
