In the Book of Ecclesiastes we find Solomon in his old age, reflecting back on his life and his attempts to find purpose and fulfillment in life, while at the same time to a limited degree, including God in the mix.    Solomon was very rich and could afford to get anything money could buy, therefore he said, he tried it all. The king said he tried to find fulfillment in education, pleasure, materialism, wealth, music, philosophy, status, and sex. He actually did what most people only dream of. But in the end, it all turned into a nightmare of emptiness and vanity.  He said he tried all types of things and situations in his quest.

  He even named his various escapades, he said he got high, he partied, he got the best of music, he got him 1000 women, of which he could have sex with anytime he wanted, he built large mansions, he got all types of silver and gold, etc. It is in this context that we see Solomon, looking back over the days of his youth, and how he had squandered  much of what God had blessed him with, in his quest to find fulfillment, meaning, and peace, in the things of this world..  Solomon repeatedly used the word "vanity" when describing what he achieved in his quest, (he used it 38 times).  The word vanity used here is not speaking of personal vanity, as in spending too much time in front of their mirror every day.

  The word in the original Hebrew means emptiness, futility, meaninglessness, a wisp of a vapor, a hollow, empty ring, nothingness and a bubble that bursts. Solomon was saying that nothing on this earth would satisfy us completely. No thing, no pleasure, no relationship, no accomplishment will bring enduring value in life.  After reflecting back on his life, Solomon concluded that the most important thing to do is to seek to obey and honor God, while still young.  He warned that the evil days (the aches and pains of old age) would come. When the enthusiasm and ability to function in life would wane 1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;  Eccl 12:1.  

Today we are seeing a generation who for the most part, don’t have a clue, when it come to God, as our creator, and our accountability to Him.   Nor or they aware of or even interested in His warnings about the coming day of judgment, and their need to survive on judgment day. Teens and young adults  today are the most non-Christian generation in the history of our western society.   Research has shown that  in the US only four out of 100 teens hold a true biblical worldview. a new survey released by one of the nation's leading evangelical polling firms The Barna Group announced its findings from its new research project, "Gen Z:

   

We have all heard all about millennials. But what about the generation coming right behind them? Gen Z,   This is the generation that is beginning to attend high school, and in some cases  college. In many ways, they're vastly different from their millennial predecessors — less religious, more success-oriented, more diverse, more captivated by technology and more likely to embrace different views on sexual identity. Gen Z will quickly become the largest American generation yet. They are today’s teenagers and children 18 and under (born between 1999 to 2015). Millennials were born between 1984 to 1998; Gen X were born between 1965 to 1983; Boomers were born between 1946 to 1964; and Elders were born before 1946.

   

Research discovered that more teens today who are part of Generation Z (born from 1999 to 2015) identify themselves as agnostic, atheist or not religiously affiliated.   These conditions have been building up for a few years,  What has caused this development is due to the fact, that the parents of today’s up and coming younger generation, saw no urgent need to expose their kids to the things of God in a serious and meaningful way.   Which has led to a generation which for the most part don’t appreciate God, seriously doubt His ability to give them a full and meaningful life, and definitely don’t take  His warnings of a coming day of judgment seriously.
