Work and Play Are God’s Gifts

Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 NRSV

It is fitting to eat and drink and find enjoyment in all the toil with which one toils… Likewise all to whom God gives wealth and possessions and whom he enables to enjoy them… this is the gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 5:18b-19b)

Meaningful work and refreshing enjoyment are gifts from God for a balanced life.
