And I think this is reflective of life. Parents I think are happy when their kids are doing things that make them happy (things in the Lord, as opposed to immorality). We enjoy a cat or a dog because it makes us happy when we see them happy (they wag their tail, play wildly, or purr appreciatively). And I happen to think God is most pleased when he sees us having fun and happy.
So what do I do that makes me happy? As I was thinking through this the Lord said to go watch TV now. Really? So I did and I watched 2 shows, American Ninja Warrior and America’s Got Talent. I really enjoyed it because I am gunning for an American to finally beat the Ninja course and I enjoy the talent on the shows. I wasn’t watching something because I was bored, because it was a habit, because of anything other than the Lord wanted to give me some enjoyment.
Now I’ve tried to think of other things that bring enjoyment. It’s harder than I thought.
