DAY 212: Work - Life Balance



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?
