So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.
PHILIPPIANS 4:4 (MSG)
Celebrate God all day, every day. I mean, revel in him!
Do what you can to enjoy God and the life he has given to you.
Why do some people think of God as a killjoy? How do we counter such thinking?
Thank you, generous God, for all the reasons I have to celebrate life. I confess, though, that there is some negativity in me. I tend to dwell on the problems and that sucks the joy out of me. Show me how to have healthy fun without feeling guilt over that freedom. There are so many negative people and situations but I'm not going to rent them space in my brain. I'm going to revel in you and the great life you've given to me. Amen.
THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name, your Kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil. For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever. Amen.
