And I saw that all toil and all achievement spring from one person’s envy of another. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind. Fools fold their hands and ruin themselves. Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind. ~ Ecclesiastes 4: 4-6
God gave men the curse of working the soil by the sweat of our brow. It's our duty to work for our food, our well-being, and our livlihood.
However, work was never designed to be our god - rather - it was given to remind us of God's dominion. Our work was given to us to use as a blessing for ourselves and others.
Today, as you put your hands to the wheel (in whatever your endeavor), remember to pursue balance. Working to keep up with "the neighbors" is a fast way to make idols out of your job or career.
How is your work/life balance?
