Do not be over-righteous, neither be overwise – why destroy yourself?
Do not be over-wicked, and do not be a fool – why die before your time?
It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other.
The person who fears God will avoid all extremes.
—Ecclesiastes 7: 16, 18 NIV
A Time to Think … “When you convince yourself that nothing runs without you, eventually you can get to the place where nothing runs—because even you don’t anymore.” ―Rev. Carey nieuwhof, Author, Pastor and Leadership Trainer
A Time to Act … When did you embrace the fact that only you can get something done to make it right? We easily fall into this and it is deadly for body, soul and mind. Jesus wanted unity and to embrace unity we must embrace others and work along-side them, encourage them to use their talents as we use ours, and live with one another in humility and kindness.
A Time to Pray… O Jesus, somewhere along the way I’ve decided I’m the ONLY solution to so many things that now I’m tired, burned-out, and lonely because I’ve alienated so many others. Fill me anew with your Holy Spirit, bring me back into the fold of your children where we can all work together for the good of humanity and the Kingdom of God. In your name I ask it, AMEN.
