Life is God’s Gift

Ecclesiastes 5:18-19, “Behold that which I have seen: it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion. Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.”
Life is a gift from God. Your life is to be enjoyed not merely endured. Embrace your life, the strengths and weaknesses, the opportunities and abilities, the highs and the lows that God has given to you. Trust God with all of it. The purpose for which man was created is to glorify God. God is most glorified by you when you are most satisfied in Him. Trusting in and living for Christ is always serious business, but it must not always be somber. In fact, the lives of those who trust God should be joyfully lived. Life is a gift from God. Appreciate and enjoy it.
