Are You Enjoying It?
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. – 1 Timothy 6:17, NLT
I don’t hear too many preachers teaching that God wants us to enjoy our lives, to enjoy our work, to enjoy what He gives us.
It sounds like following God is supposed to be this somber, solemn experience, but God clearly says in this Scripture that He gives us all things we need to enjoy.
We are supposed to enjoy our lives, our work, our families, our kids, our spouses. We are supposed to be having a good time.
So the question is: if we are to enjoy our lives, why aren’t we?
