“A person can do nothing better than to eat and drink and find satisfaction in their own toil. This too, I see, is from the hand of God…”
Our consumer-driven culture tells us that, unless we have the best TV, the best car, and the best house filled with the best things, then we’re not living life to the fullest. And, isn’t life meant to be lived fully?
As we watch TV shows based in fantasy, we think, “That’s what my house needs to look like. That’s what my car needs to look like.” We may go into debt to make it happen, and then worry about our debt, not having enough, how we’re going to pay for things. We work longer hours, go in earlier, come home later, continue to acquire things, continue to pay on our debts, and continue to worry.
Our expectations can get totally out of control and destroy our happiness. As a result, we live in a world that is filled but unfulfilled, busy but unproductive. We’re constantly in a hurry, never really stopping to take in what it really means to live in this life today. Instead, we’re always worrying about tomorrow, never just living and enjoying the kingdom of God today, which is what Jesus asked us to do.
Don’t worry about tomorrow. Don’t worry about what is to come. A life filled with worry is not the kind of life God wants you to have. Amen?
Prayer: Dear Lord, I want to enjoy the life with which I have been blessed by You. When worry tries to steal my blessing, I will turn my thoughts to You. Amen.
May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!
May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
