God is not a “buzzkill”
God really does want us to enjoy life. He wants us to enjoy our work. He wants us to enjoy the resulting provision that comes from His hand.
The Apostle Paul, writing to Timothy, said that God richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment (1 Timothy 6:17b)
Solomon gave us a wonderful reflection on life and the resources provided by God in Ecclesiastes 8:15: So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.
So whether we are digging a ditch, chopping wood, watching a ballgame, or cleaning the house, let’s enjoy every moment of every day of this life we are privileges to live. Stay faithful to God and all His commands and joy will truly be our theme.
