"For there is a proper time and procedure for every delight, though a man’s trouble is heavy upon him." Ecclesiastes 8:6 NAS
Thoughts for Today
There is more to life than fun. It would be nice if this life were all pleasurable, but it is not. We cannot avoid or escape times of hardship.
The key? Follow God through the good times and the bad. Trust him through the good and the difficult. Enjoy seasons of pleasure and fun, but don't look to them as life's answer.
Consider this …
Here are two attitudes about pleasure. The first seems more natural, but makes life hard. The second seems hard, but makes life good. Where do you see yourself?
1. Give me more, more, more. "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die." In pursing mostly fun activities, I try to avoid trudging through the harder parts of life.
2. I am willing to accept the bad with the good. I appreciate balance and moderation. I enjoy seasons of pleasure, not pleasure as all there is to this life.
Father, help me have a balanced attitude toward pleasure, and toward life. Help me to walk with you through the good times and the bad. Help me to always recognize my need for you and to trust you. In Jesus' name . . .
