Bible Verses About Enjoying The Moment

The Bible teaches Christians, especially the youth, to enjoy life. God gives us the ability to enjoy our possessions. Does this mean you will have no problems in life? No, does this mean you are going to be rich? No, but enjoying life has nothing to do with being rich.

We are never to be materialistic and become obsessed with possessions.

You will never be happy about anything if you’re not content with what you have.

Be careful, Christians are not to be part of the world and its deceitful desires. We are not to live a life of rebellion.

We must make sure God condones our activities and that they don’t go against God’s Word. This will help us in making good decisions instead of bad ones in life.

Be happy and thank God every day because He created you for a reason. Laugh, have fun, smile, and remember to enjoy. Learn to cherish the little things. Count your blessings daily.
