Nine times in the first six chapters of Ecclesiastes, Solomon uses the phrase “chasing after the wind.” He implies that to chase after even the good things in life without a greater purpose on the horizon of our efforts will enslave us to spend our lives chasing only after the purposeless winds of life. That ill-fated chase takes place because we were pursuing things and experiences that have no lasting meaning and were not aligned with a greater purpose.  It would be wise to discover that higher purpose as soon as possible in this life so that at the end of our days, we will leave behind a testimony of meaning and substance that happened because somewhere along the way we changed the course and direction of our life-experiences to align with God’s greater purpose for our existence.
