Proverbs of a 38 yr old man

What is the best thing to do in the short life God has given us? I think we should enjoy eating, drinking, and working hard. Life is short, and you love your wife, so enjoy being with her. This is what you are supposed to do as you struggle through life on this earth. This is what God intends for us to do. We should enjoy all that God gives to us. Then our days will be full of happy activity and the time will pass quickly. There will be little opportunity to worry. We will not think about why we do not live for a long time. We will not try to understand why we are alive. As a result, we will sleep well. God gives wealth to some people. Also he gives to them the power so that they can enjoy that wealth. People will enjoy things that they use wisely. But what they have depends on God. And people must remember that, for it is the secret to contentment. If you have lived long enough you have seen good citizens die for doing the right thing, while criminals live and prosper. So don’t be too good or too wise! Why destroy yourself? Also, on the other hand don't die before your time by being too evil or acting like a fool. So please pay attention to these instructions, for anyone who fears God will avoid both extremes. For sure though, to know God in Christ should be your greatest pursuit above all.

Study Deut. 8:18
