There is nothing better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and make his soul enjoy good in his labor. This also I saw, that it is from the hand of God (Ecclesiastes 2:24).
There is some joy in labor: the pleasure gained by making or doing and seeing that effort come to fruition. Humanity, however, wants to think more grandly and highly of their efforts as they did at Babel; it is all vanity and striving after wind. Let us enjoy our labor but not idolize it and serve the Lord Jesus!
