Daily Scripture:

So I commend enjoyment, for there is nothing better for people under the sun than to eat, and drink, and enjoy themselves, for this will go with them in their toil through the days of life that God gives them under the sun. (Ecclesaistes 8 v 15)

Daily Reflection:

How are your New Year’s Resolutions going?? I have been trying very hard to stick to one of mine and that is - to enjoy myself more.
Allowing myself time to relax and enjoy the good things God has given me in this life enhances not only my own state of mind and well-being but positively influences all those around me. I want to be the kind of person that people want to be around. I want to enjoy the relationships that God has given me and everything else he has entrusted into my care.
After God created the world, he stopped and rested. On the seventh day, he took time to enjoy his creation and to rest from his work. It is good for us to work hard and to be successful but let it not be at the expense of everything else. Let us take time to enjoy the fruit of our labours.
