Commentary: Worshipping the Lord God is different from worshipping false gods. False gods demand rituals, the Lord does not. The Lord demands that we worship Him and Him alone, for He is the true God. He expects us to uphold our word and promises. Solomon, the richest man in the world, fails to find satisfaction in his wealth and riches. Without the Lord, wealth and riches can never satisfy. A person will always want more, but to what end? The riches will stay on earth when we die.
Focus Verses: 5:1-3 Why does the Lord not demand rituals? Why is it beneficial to not have rituals?
