Epicetus: “Bear in mind that you should conduct yourself in life as at a feast.” What could that mean for us? On days of special blessing, we are especially commanded: “When you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them . . . you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.”[Deuteronomy 8:12, 18]
