The 3 Best Things In Life
Posted: Wednesday, September 2
2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Verse of the day:
So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him? (Ecclesiastes 2:24-25)
I love to eat! You can probably tell that by looking at me. Anything Mexican or Italian and I’m throwing down! I also love Sprecher root beer, but the award for the best root beer float goes to the A&W in Caledonia who makes their own root beer and offers frosted mugs. Sipping on a chilled scintillating root beer float on a warm Wisconsin summer day with my gorgeous wife - that’s the best right there! By the way, I absolutely love my job! I'm living the dream at Oak Creek Assembly of God.
Solomon, the wisest man to have ever lived, ponders the merit of existence. He says that in all of his wisdom, knowing all that he knows and never denying pleasures offered him, the more wisdom he gains the sadder he becomes about life. The book of Ecclesiastes is quite depressing because of this, but Solomon, the writer, comes to the conclusion that the best things in life is to eat, drink, and enjoy what you spend time doing! He adds this compact clause at the end of it this thought brings it all together when he says, “Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him?”
