I Cor. 7:30-31 Happiness or sadness or wealth should not keep anyone from doing God's work. Those in frequent contact with the things of the world should make good use of them without becoming attached to them, for this world and all it contains will pass away.
So, what is your excuse?  What keeps you from doing the work God has given you to do?  If you can honestly say that you are doing what God has given you to do, I thank God for you.  I praise Him for you and your service to Him.  Keep up the great work!
If however, you know that you are not doing what God has given you to do, shame on you.  I plead with you to pray about it.  You are in disobedience and need to repent of your sin.  God has been so good to you and yet, you are doing your thing instead of God's work.  You ought to be ashamed of yourself.  There simply is no valid excuse for a child of God to not be working in the Kingdom of God.  You were not saved to sit on a pew; you are saved to serve the Lord.
In whatever way the Lord has blessed you with this world's goods, you should be using them to serve the Lord.  Don't amass stuff for your comfort and enjoyment and neglect the work of God.  Nothing in this world is going to last; it will all pass away.  The only thing that will never die out is that which flows from God.  Nothing in this world will give you peace of soul.  Nothing in this world is worth living for. 
Peace, joy, happiness, contentment, purpose for living, hope, and anything worth living for are all rooted in Christ alone.
