Stop and enjoy your life. Trear yourself. Play with your children. Spend quailty time with the people who are special to you.
Yes we have to work, yes we have responsibilities, but God expects us to enjoy ourselves, our families and the fruit of our work too.
So many people are striving to make a living, but aren’t living.
They are living to work rather than working to live.
They brag about, “I got to the office hours early or stayed hours late”. “I volunteered for hours of overtime.” That’s good and it has its place at times, but too many people are missing years, and some of life’s best memories trying to make it, get more or take care of what they may have over obligated themselves to. That’s not God’s will for our lives.
Working…and working…and working…without stopping to enjoy life is like chasing wind. That’s what the book of Ecclesiastes says. And, even if we stop and enjoy all that God has blessed us to obtain and achieve, we will still find void, emptiness and incompleteness without a relationship with Him through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That’s why material things are never enough, it’s like chasing and grasping at the wind.
Only enjoying and sharing what we have through a relationship with God can fulfill us. Don’t just spend your days in the pursuit of life, but never living. Read Ecclesiastes Chapters 1, 2, 6 and 12….notice what it says about CHASING THE WIND…so you can avoid WINDY DAYS.
