  1. This verse speaks volumes on such a deep level! Apart from him all his dust and chaff, meaningless, vapor. What is existence without him who gave us our very being? What is work and food and drink unless for his glory in our enjoyment and by His Spirit. Thank you Kent for this verse and the wonderful graphic with it. I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a while, and will see you on the other side.
    Grace and peace to you and your family,

    1. You are very right, Dora, it speaks volumes as it is so practical yet it is Godly wisdom; something to ponder upon as it is GOD’s Word written in the Bible. Everything we’ve done will be a waste if we don’t enjoy its fruits but what does enjoyment here really mean? That will be a range of answers depending on the perspective and you are right, so temporal and short life is and why not rejoice it with the Triune GOD; and that includes a time, resources, and effort for knowing and following Him. As you have pointed out, GOD is our Creator and without Him sustaining us, where will we be, as whatever a person’s status with GOD (saved or unsaved), that person needs GOD to live. GOD sustains that person according to His will and plan. And you are right, why not enjoy this temporal life by giving time for GOD’s glory, knowing that following and worshipping Him is a rehearsal for eternity.
      Grateful to GOD for those pictures and contributors to a free graphics site. Sometimes, a break is a way to energize/rejuvenate. May GOD bless you and your family! Looking forward to what comes after your break!

    1. This is a timely comment! You are right about the simplicity of contentment, Alan! Indeed, relying and trusting on GOD who sustains us instead, is the best thing, just like in Matthew 6:26 and 10:29-31. Our world is full of stress, although stress in work is normal, one must have a limit for it and learn to enjoy the fruits of our toil. Blessings to you and your family!

    1. You are right, Jim! We should be grateful for what GOD has given us and enjoy it in thanksgiving to Him who blesses us and not on false security. We should idolize the Source and not the result of our toil nor the toil. Engrossed on our toil is vanity but acknowledging GOD as the strength is humilty. Blessings to you and your family!
