As for every man…to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor- this is the gift of God.” Ecclesiastes 5:19. The writer of Ecclesiastes saw God at every turn in the enjoyment of material things.  From beginning to end, all of life is a continuous gift-giving by God.  We deserve nothing. He owes us nothing. Yet He gives us everything.  If we remember this, we need not feel selfish or guilty.  Whatever material blessings we have are a gift from our gracious God.  God, who has given so much to us, gives one more thing a grateful heart.
