‘Nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works, for that is his heritage.’ Ecclesiastes 3:22 NKJV
Solomon writes: ‘Nothing is better than that a man should rejoice in his own works.’ That is why we are here! No one can bring us back from death to enjoy life after we die.’ Begin now to think about what you can do to find more joy in every experience. The present moment is all you’re guaranteed, so don’t wait until later – until your exams are over, you finish school, go on holiday, or get married – to enjoy your life. No one knows what will happen next in their lives or in the world. You’re alive now,, so maximise it, embrace it, and celebrate it. Nobody was busier than Jesus, yet He knew how to celebrate! His first miracle was performed at a wedding reception. His schedule was hectic, yet He interrupted it to enjoy time with children. The needs He faced were endless, yet He took time off to rest. How do you live your life? Do you take chances when opportunities come your way? Do you organise outings with friends? Do you climb mountains, swim in rivers and oceans, and enjoy nature? Do you sing or dance as if nobody is watching? Do you stop yourself from worrying about imaginary troubles? Are you one of those people who never goes anywhere because you’re worried about being judged, or not liked or think something bad might happen? Don’t wait; just enjoy your life now.
