"There is nothing better for a man than to eat and drink and tell himself that his labor is good. This also I have seen that it is from the hand of God. For who can eat and who can have enjoyment without Him?"
We work all our lives to put away enough money so that we no longer have to work. As if work is something to abhor. But Solomon tells us here that it's good to labor; that it's as good as eating and drinking. God is the one who provides the work. It is to our enjoyment when we acknowledge His provision with thanks and complete our tasks for His glory. "Everyone gets certain gifts from God such as life, food, drink and work, but only the children of God who walk with Him faithfully get the gifts of enjoyment and satisfaction. This is a great secret, that our stuff and our satisfaction are two different things and that our satisfaction doesn't come from our stuff, but from our Savior." -- David Fairchild
