In most of our life we don’t tend to think about death.  But every now and then we get a chilling reminder that death is not an abstract concept for us humans… it is a very real reality and our very certain destiny.  Now while a sermon of death doesn’t seem that edifying, the fact Ecclesiastes speaks so candidly about it gives  us something that perhaps nothing else in life does… it vindicates the pain and fear we feel around death.  But it will also give us great perspective on how to live in the knowledge that our destiny is death.
