BIBLE READING PLAN:    Ecclesiastes 6-11


“Enjoy life with the wife whom you love, all the days of your vain life that He has given you under the sun, because that is your portion in life and your toil at which you toil under the sun. Eccl. 9:9


  • We can be so busy and concerned about tomorrow that we forget to enjoy today.
  • Our spouse is the one that we are intended to spend and share our life with.  If you
    can’t enjoy life with that person, you will have a difficult time finding enjoyment.
  • Toiling is part of life.
  • The idea that enjoyment only comes from a life of ease would mean that the vast majority of everyone who has ever lived never was able to enjoy life.
  • Joy is a fruit of the Spirit.  Therefore, to enjoy life fully requires a work of the Spirit in our lives.

PRAYER:    Lord, thank you for this life that you have given me.  Thank you for my work which is my portion in this life and is a gift from you.  Thank you for my wonderful wife, who is a treasure of unspeakable measure.  I ask Father that you would grow in me the fruit of joy that I am fully enjoy this life as you intend.  Amen

 The above is my Bible Reading Plan. I am providing it in hopes that it will encourage you to start one of your own.
