“Work and Play"
My child, remember my teachings and instructions and obey them completely. They will help you live a long and prosperous life. Proverbs 3:1-2 (CEV)
LIVE A BALANCED LIFE BY KEEPING YOUR FOCUS ON THE LORD
* WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 4 PRIORITIES IN LIFE?
1. WORK AS UNTO THE LORD; NOT TO “OURSELVES”
“Whatever you do, do your work heartily as for the Lord, rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.” Colossians 3:23-24 (NASB)
2. DON’T WAIT ON “WHEN”
FIND CONTENTMENT IN THE SIMPLE THINGS
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. James 4:1-2 (NIV)
3. LIGHTEN UP! ENJOY YOUR LIFE’S JOURNEY TODAY!
A joyful heart promotes healing; but a broken spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22 (DBT)
