Enjoying the Moment and Be Merry

Enjoying the Moment and Be Merry

I am quite pleased that Scripture supports having a merry heart. I think we too often portray the Christian life as one of seriousness, but Solomon said, “There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoyment in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God” (Ecclesiastes 2:24). Are you enjoying your life? Do you find pleasure in being a Christian, associating and enjoying the fellowship of others and even in your labors? Perhaps, like me, you need to give yourself permission to experience the fullness of joy in life.
