I don’t trust myself to order or prioritize these, so put no weight on what item comes before another.
- Drink and eat a lot with family and friends (Deuteronomy 14.22-27; Ecclesiastes 9.7).
- Include strangers, people below your socio-economic status, and characters of ill-repute in these parties–if you notice they aren’t being treated in a really welcoming manner, you may need to invite fewer of your friends in order to produce the right environment (Deuteronomy 16.10-15; Luke 14.12-14; Luke 15.1, 2).
- Have frequent sex with your spouse (Ecclesiastes 9.9; First Corinthians 7.2-5).
- Enjoy your work (Ecclesiastes 9.10).
- Work hard (Ecclesiastes 11.6).
- Worship God in public with other people (Psalm 100, ad infinitum).
- Sing really violent songs as prayers (The Psalms).
- Loan money without expecting payment in return (Luke 6.35).
- Pursue profit in business–otherwise you are never going to be able to afford to be open handed (Luke 19.20-26; Ephesians 4.28).
- Enjoy the luxuries you have (Ecclesiastes 9.8).
- If it is an especially holy day, and you hear the Law of God and are feeling especially convicted for your many sins, make sure you don’t weep but rather go party and share food and fellowship with others (Nehemiah 8).
- Gently restore people you catch in wrongdoing and don’t demand payback when you are the victim (Galatians 6.1, 2).
- Teach your children to be spiritual(Deuteronomy 6.1-9).
- Don’t care if anyone else judges you or your children as unspiritual; care what God thinks (Romans 2.28, 29).
I really like this!
