Keeping yourself in check

Every Sunday is an opportunity to take a break. 

Every Sunday is an opportunity to rest. 

Every Sunday is an opportunity to slow down.

Every Sunday is an opportunity to keep everything in check—your life, your actions, and your motivations.

I like today’s scripture reading:

I prayed, and prudence was given me; I pleaded, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. I preferred her to scepter and throne, and deemed riches nothing in comparison with her, nor did I liken any priceless gem to her; because all gold, in view of her, is a little sand, and before her, silver is to be accounted mire. Beyond health and comeliness I loved her, and I chose to have her rather than the light, because the splendor of her never yields to sleep. Yet all good things together came to me in her company, and countless riches at her hands. — Wisdom 7:7-11

What motivates you? Is it gold that will not last forever? Or is it something far greater like love and wisdom?

Every week, try to keep yourself in check—your actions and your motivations.

Do things for the right reasons.

 

P.S. I’m sorry for the late post today. I haven’t been feeling well since yesterday.
