Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage. As for every man to whom God has given riches and wealth, and given him power to eat of it, to receive his heritage and rejoice in his labor—this is the gift of God. For he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart.
God wants His people to enjoy their lives. It is true that He has a plan and a purpose for you, which includes ministry and outreach to others; but God also wants His people to enjoy the blessings He has given them. God wants His people to relax and enjoy the fruit of their hard work. True spirituality is not just defined by praying, reading the Bible, going o church. It is also spiritual to enjoy the life you have as a gift from God. This is all said AFTER the verses 8-17 where it talks about the vanity of Gain and Honor. Our love for the Lord brings joy to our heart and God keeps us busy doing His will.
