Enjoy your accomplishments

Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil – this is a gift of God. ~ Ecclesiastes 5:19

We should work, not just to accomplish, but also to enjoy our accomplishments. God has given us all we have for our enjoyment.

I have seen so many Christians, they have worked hard, they have something to show for that, they have some money they can use to enjoy themselves, but no they won’t. They feel like if they go for a holiday, say in The Bahamas, they won’t be ‘holy’ anymore. Others think spoiling themselves with a good meal at a good restaurant isn’t Christian… that is not true.

The Lord Himself gives us wealth plus the ability to enjoy the wealth He has given us. As long as Jesus is glorified on your trip, as you shop away even as you enjoy that many-course meal, then you are good to go.

You heard it, you heard it… after fulfilling your financial obligations, do not tuck away the rest, spoil yourself some. Enjoy the wealth and possessions God has given you, they are His gift to you!
