MAN’S QUEST FOR THE BEST
“Running on Empty”
Ecclesiastes 1-2
October 19,1998
Liberty Univeristy
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
What a privilege to be with Dr. Fallwell and to
be on the campus of the great Liberty University! I
have prayed for God to use these next few minutes to
forever change your life. You see .. God wants to
forever set you free from the monster of materialism
and the god of greed!
So .. take your Bible and join me in the Old
Testament book of Ecclesiastes. You say, “Ernest,
that’s a funny name for a book of the Bible:
Ecclesiastes.”
Well .. you’re going to find that the name of

God! It’s not your jewels that satisfy . . .. It’s
Jesus. It’s not your silver that satisfies . . . it’s the
savior!
“I’d rather have Jesus than silver or gold; I’d
rather be His than riches untold; I’d rather have
Jesus than houses or lands. I’d rather be led by
His nail-pierced hand.”
That’s what the book of Ecclesiastes is all
about: MAN’S QUEST FOR THE BEST. I want to
show you from God’s Word how Man’s Quest for
the Best often times leaves a person “running on
empty.”
Let’s begin reading in chapter 1 verse 1 as we
think together about ...
