The Old Testament Book of Ecclesiastes is a difficult one to understand. Most scholars believe that King Solomon is the author. King Solomon writes the Song of Songs as a young adult, which is a great read for married couples. He writes the bulk of Proverbs as a middle-aged adult, and it is so full of wisdom from God.

Have you heard people talk about the good ole days or the glory days? When someone talks about the glory days, he is typically reminiscing a fond memory of the past.

I am an extremely positive and optimistic person. No matter what the situation, I always think it will work out with a best-case scenario. I definitely see the glass half-full.

 In Exodus 13 the Israelites are between a rock and a hard place. Actually, they are stuck between the shores of the Red Sea and the Egyptian Army. God used Moses to lead the Israelites out of captivity in Egypt where they were slaves for hundreds of years.

What is real love? There are so many different kinds of love, and there are so many different levels of love. Many of us love food. This is evident in my 200-pound frame. I talk about food so much during my sermons that church members bring me food on Sunday.

How do you view God? There are so many misconceptions about God. God is not a “genie in a bottle”. Our wish is not his command. God is not a “Santa Claus God” who simply exists to bring us good gifts. God is not a “911 God” who we only call when we have an emergency and need him to extinguish a major problem in our lives. God is not an “old man in the sky” who sounds like Morgan Freeman. God is not a “cosmic cop” who flies around the world looking to punish those who break his rules.
