Seek Pleasure in God

1 Timothy 6:17 (TLB) Tell those who are rich not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone, but their pride and trust should be in the living God who always richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment.

Psalm 16:11 (NLT) You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence and the pleasures of living with you forever.

Job 36:11 (KJV) If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

Live while you live, the Epicure would say,
And seize the pleasures of the present day;
Live while you live, the sacred preacher cries,
And give to God each moment as it flies;
Lord, in my view let both united be;
I live in pleasure when I live to thee.
Philip Doddridge (1702-1751)
