Awakening the Evangelical Church to Domestic Violence and Abuse in its Midst

A Good Name — part 8 of Ecclesiastes sermon series by Ps Sam Powell

A Good Name
by Ps Sam Powell
Ecclesiastes 7:1-6 (NKJV)

Chapter 7 A good name is better than precious ointment,

And the day of death than the day of one’s birth;
2 Better to go to the house of mourning
Than to go to the house of feasting,
For that is the end of all men;
And the living will take it to heart.
3 Sorrow is better than laughter,
For by a sad countenance the heart is made better.
4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning,
But the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.

5 It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
6 For like the crackling of thorns under a pot,
So is the laughter of the fool.
This also is vanity.

    Helpful sermon. Thanks for posting. Sam unpacks why it is better to be in the house of mourning than feasting – for it is here where we find God.
