Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry: for that shall abide with him of his labour the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun. (KJV)
‘Eat, drink, and be merry.’ This is good, sound reasoning on how to live life but how many have taken it to the extreme and changed it to ‘Party Hardy!’? God wants us to enjoy the fruits of our labors and find the humor in everyday life, but He also wants us to remember where everything comes from. He wants His children to be happy and gives to those who give Him thanks. Eat, drink, and be merry; but do so responsibly, in due moderation, and you will be rewarded with a fuller, richer life.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit fill us with the joy of living as was Your intention from the beginning. Thank You for all that You have given us in this life and may we always receive Your gifts with appreciation and use them with responsibility, in moderation, and to further Your glorification with the proper recognition and praise.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
