For those of you who would like to think more about the enjoyment of life by receiving it as a gift from God – I would highly recommend Joe Rigney’s book, “The Things of Earth: Treasuring God by Enjoying His Gifts.” You can find the book on Amazon here.
Here is a quote I cited in yesterday’s sermon:
“It’s entirely appropriate, when confronted with tremendous gifts, to periodically compare love for the gifts and love for the giver. It’s good to be reminded that the giver—God—is ultimate. But then, once the supremacy of the giver is settled, the right and fitting response is to dive back into the pumpkin crunch cake and enjoy every last bite” (page 102).
