At work last week, I was humming a song. Not really paying attention at first cuz I was focused on work, but then I realized what the song was. “Good Time” by ALAN JACKSON.
It reminded me of something KING SOLOMON said in Ecclesiastes.
When you dedicate 12-14 hours to work a day, it can wear you down. Especially if you don’t have a goal of some sort for the work you do.
They know when it’s time for a Good time.
This is the start of “Good Time” :
“Work, work all week long.
Punchin’ that clock from dusk ’till dawn
Countin’ the days ’till Friday night
That’s when all the conditions are right
For a good time
I need a good time
Yeah, I’ve been workin’ all week
And I’m tired and I don’t wanna sleep
I wanna have fun
It’s time for a good time”
This is what KING SOLOMON has to say in Ecclesiastes about a good time:
“I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God‘s work from beginning to end. So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God.” -Ecclesiastes 3:10-13 NLT
I like when I can find biblical principles in the everyday life.
Now I will enjoy a cold one and talk to God.
God bless y’all!
