Ecclesiastes 9:7; Ecclesiastes 9:12 (New International Version)
Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do.
Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come: As fish are caught in a cruel net, or birds are taken in a snare, so men are trapped by evil times that fall unexpectedly upon them.
