How are we to view God's earthly gifts to us? God gives us many enjoyable things, like exercise, watching sports, sex, crafting, knitting, drinking beer or wine, so how are we to receive them and enjoy them? Is enjoying such earthly pleasures in opposition to the holy live we are to live? Many false teachers today teach abstinence from such pleasures in the name of a false, legalistic holiness, but God wants us to not only enjoy His good gifts, but also to receive them with thanksgiving.
We are to receive God's gifts with gratitude because has declared all of his gifts as good.
