A nine out of ten day, for me, has both personal joy and spiritual fulfillment. It might start with quiet reflection, which sets the tone for the day.
Ideally, The day would include meaningful interactions with others, whether spending quality time with family and friends or engaging in acts of kindness towards others, echoing the teachings of Jesus about loving and serving others. In Matthew 25:40 (NKJV), Jesus says, "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
A good walk or time spent outdoors also allows me to appreciate the beauty of God's creation, providing a sense of wonder. Meaningful relationships and an appreciation of nature culminate in a day that's enjoyable and spiritually enriching. It's a day that balances personal pleasures with a more profound sense of purpose and connection with God.
Being fulfilled in life will always need to include your faith in God.
Lord, help me live a balanced life, appreciate people, beauty, things and, of course, You. Amen.
If you haven’t taken a walk or spent time reflecting on the beauty around you - do it.
