"Do not toil to acquire wealth; be discerning enough to desist." ESV
The theme of this world is to get rich, accumulate things, have the latest, keep up with those around us. No matter how we try to achieve this, it takes a lot of time and energy. So often, people are so busy making money they have little or no time to enjoy the things it can buy them. By the time the age of retirement and rest approaches, health issues are present and the years of overwork and pushing ourselves to the limit takes its toll. God tells us to live modestly and seek Him. Are we wearing ourselves out for the things of this world or are we nourishing our bodies and souls for Christ?
Lord, forgive us for losing sight of the truly important, eternal things of this life. Help us use the wisdom You have given us to live modestly and to use our energy and time as good stewards of the time and energy You give us. In Your name we pray, Amen.
