I’m just saying… there’s a time and place for everything, rather its hard work or play. Sure, take your job; your business; your church… as SERIOUS as you possibly can, but, don’t let it obsess you to the extent that you can’t lay down the shovel and go home for the weekend.
Ecclesiastes 5:18-20 This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot. Moreover, when God gives someone wealth and possessions, and the ability to enjoy them, to accept their lot and be happy in their toil—this is a gift of God. They seldom reflect on the days of their life, because God keeps them occupied with gladness of heart.
We’ve all heard the expression… “All work, and no play, makes Charley a dull boy.” Becoming obsessed with work and career, could be detrimental to your marriage, and even…your children, and your… spiritual life. A guy who is happy at home is happy at work, and by keeping both well balanced… he will have a more sustained and successful career.
Ecclesiastes 8:15 – So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.
Colossians 3:17 And whatever you do, in word or deed,do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
