To challenge the children about what goal are they running toward.
The Book of Ecclesiastes is somewhat disjointed when you read it, however its message is quite clear. It states in many ways that Life as man lives it, without God, is futile. He talks of life being pointless and purposeless and empty without God. This is so relevant for today, as the majority of the Western World lives without any recognition of God and strives to find meaning in life in possessions, occupation, love, power and/or doing good deeds. Our children today can grow up never learning the God is real and alive and offers them an alternative. It is a good start to challenge the children about what they are really living for. Coming from a man like Solomon that had all that today is seen as successful, is really powerful.
