“So I recommend the enjoyment [of life]. People have nothing better to do under the sun than to eat, drink, and enjoy themselves. This joy will stay with them while they work hard during their brief lives which God has given them under the sun” (Ecc 8:15)
Most people assume that if they have some extra money, they will enjoy life automatically. This is a lie. Money cannot buy happiness. The enjoyment of life does not come easily. It is the gift of God. God commands His children to enjoy their life on earth as they are waiting for heaven to become a reality. You work and you enjoy. You talk and you pray. You make money and you spend money. All things must be balanced to become useful and beautiful. Guilt, shame and anxiety must die so that you can experience the freedom of pure enjoyment. Very few people are able to live well. By the grace of God I am one of them. I have eternal life in my soul. I enjoy my life here on earth. The Almighty God is my Heavenly Father, the provider of all good things which come free of sorrow. I wish you feel what I feel… As a medical doctor, as a pastor and friend, I recommend that you should work hard and enjoy your life! In Jesus name, amen!
