We are sitting outside, drinking our coffee and taking in the sunrise on this Wednesday morning. Feeling lucky? Nah, more like extremely blessed. Sometimes when we get in one of our “twin talks” we get so deep into a conversation we literally drive ourselves crazy. We have to just shut it down because as hard as it is for us to accept, some things really are beyond our understanding. Some things we won’t ever figure out. We read this bible verse together this morning and it was just what we needed to hear. Funny how that always seems to happen, right? You flip to the page in your Bible and the message you receive is the advice you needed. The Big Guy really does have a sense of humor.
In the book of Ecclesiastes it says, “Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun.Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.”
Is this the basis for life? Enjoy life from the food you eat to the wine you drink. Love your spouse and enjoy your work. That’s it? We wish! But on this Wednesday morning, let us take in this simple request, without much debate. Take pleasure in your meals, happily drink your wine, love those around you and seek to find joy in your work. To sum it up in one simple word…ENJOY.
