There is Nothing Better

There seems to be quite an industry going around the inspirational attitude of making the most of every day, living in the moment, etc. Most people seem to be quite enamored of the idea, but very few people seem to understand how. Yet the question and answer are as old as the earth.

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? For to a person who is good in His sight He has given knowledge and joy, while to the sinner He has given the task of gathering and collecting so that he may give to one who is good in God's sight. This too is vanity and stiving after wind. Ecclesiastes 2:24-26
