Oh To Be Wise Meditations
I wonder how many people at the end of their lives, wind up regretting that they lived to work instead of worked to live? Life is not all about work but the people around you and God's purpose. Amazing how work becomes our identity and defines the kind of people we have become. Business isn't life, to know God is what life is all about. I worked for 7 years straight never taking days off at a certain job I recently been let go of. I missed so much important things because staying busy in work was my life. I realize now that being able to work so hard is a gift from God. In return I must not make it an obsession and lose my soul in it. Its so easy to work yourself into the ground and justify it. Workaholism is not a badge of honor, no it can become an idol we worship. Make time for God and family. These are things worth working hard for. And work smarter not harder is always a better choice. Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal. May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish for us the work of our hands—yes, establish the work of our hands! A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies has no sense.
Meditate Prov. 28:19
