The Main Point (?)
God has made all of life for a reason--"He's made everything beautiful in its time."
He's also placed "eternity" into the heart, a longing to find meaning in life. Yet, we can't.
WHY WOULD GOD DO THIS?
#1-to humble us from finding life "under the sun," to seek Him
#2-to anticipate the gospel, to create fulfillment, found in Jesus
