heart test on a holiday

ENJOY, BUT REMEMBER …

December 2015 (25)Ecclesiastes 2:1-3

1 I said in my heart, “Walk on now, I will evaluate you with pleasure; enjoy yourself.” But watch, this also was impermanent. 2 I said of laughter, “It is insane,” and of pleasure, “What good does it do?” 3 I searched in my heart ways to occupy my body with wine- my heart still guiding me with wisdom- and how to lay hold on recklessness, until I would see what was good for children of Adam to do under the sky during the few days of their lives.

heart test on a holiday

Solomon decided to test his heart while he was enjoying himself. He turned on his video camera and caught himself drinking, laughing, behaving recklessly, and having a good time. Watching the replay, he was able to analyse his actions. He had already learned his conclusion: it does not last. That’s what he is trying to tell you and me. There is nothing wrong with enjoying yourself. You just have to remember there will be a December 26th. Seek God, because a relationship with him will last for eternity.

LORD, thank you for a reason to celebrate today. Thank you for access to you, which brings a joy that lasts.
