“Better a small serving of vegetables with love than a fattened calf with hatred.” (Proverbs 15:17)
Love is not a word we often use in a business context. Here we are talking about the price we sometimes pay to live a life with a few extras. Getting a balance in life where we know our priorities and see our responsibilities clearly can have a great impact.
We have a need to be loved and to love. Don’t let your work under the disguise of providing, destroy the very people you love. We are called to provide, and that goes well beyond the financials. We have responsibilities for ourselves, our immediate families, those around us, and the greater kingdom of God.
We need to look at our relationships for a holistic perspective in order to judge reasonably.
Quick Prayer. “I need balance in my life to look after those I love, and I need your help to achieve it.” Amen
