Stupid or lazy?

Proverbs 3:1 says that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.


How many times in life have we said that? I can recall plenty of times that I have said to others that something will happen in good time. Or even just mention that one should 'give it time'. In certain respects, I guess, there is nothing wrong with that...


Now, ask yourself, if you spend your whole life working hard to gather an inheritance for your kids, or proper retirement money, is that time well spent? Yes. And no, if you spent that time at the expense of your family, your kids and relationships. The fact that we have to be clever with work etc is a given, but we need to be smart in balancing life and real life.


Luke 12:13 and onwards Jesus tells us about the rich fool. He worked hard for a while, but stopped as soon as he was rich. From then on he wanted to party only. But that night life will be demanded from him, what will he have then?


Don't be stupid and/or lazy, live life to the full, work hard, at work and with your relationships!
