Why Do the Wicked Win? - Ecclesiastes 8:1-15
November 24, 2013
Why do the wicked win? Why do bad people so often get to live easy, comfortable, enviable lives? This is one of the most frustrating realities of this world. It’s the classic instance of the high school bully that somehow climbs the social ladder and seems to stay there throughout life in spite of treating people terribly along the way.
This Sunday we continue our study of Ecclesiastes with 8:1-15. This passage pokes at us and prods us by forcing us to address this very issue: Why do the wicked win? It helps us understand how to approach leaders with whom we disagree. It also gives us great big-picture perspective on these issues.
