“How often, doing work that is good, have I betrayed what is better in myself and abandoned what is best for those I love?” –Sam Keen
Ouch! I would encourage you to seriously evaluate this question, as I have had to do this year. Very rarely are we purposely choosing to do destructive things. We do lots and lots of good things. But are they the best things? Have we nurtured our souls regularly with faith-priorities, self-care, passion-pursuits, friend-fillups, and intimacy-building with our family and support system? If not, we will find ourselves realizing we have been dry and on the death curve internally. Jesus came that we might have abundant life! Choose life today!
