The Reformed, Christian, entire, earthly life is a sacred calling. It is to be lived in any or all or spheres of the earthly creation, for example, marriage, labour, and government. It consists of using and developing all of one’s physical gifts and abilities, for example , music, scholarship, and motherhood. It not only allows, but also encourages enjoyment of all the legitimate beauties and pleasures of earthly life, whether a painting, a symphony, or a glorious sunset, or simply a good steak dinner.
