“Whatever exists is far off and most profound— who can discover it?”
Ecclesiastes 7.24 NIV
The nature of reality and its reason for existence is a mystery to man without a revelation of God. Solomon recognizes the murkiness of being. Man cannot answer the question that inevitably forms on his lips, “Why am I here?”
God provides the answer in Christ: “these are only the shadow of the things to come, but the reality is Christ!” Colossians 2.17.
