A Proper Balance

Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:” 
Jesus was busy about His Father’s business, seeking and saving the lost (John 9:4; Luke 19:10). He also recognized that rest and rejuvenation were necessary (Mark 6:31). There are times when we must be busy, and there are times when we must slow down. Jesus did both. If we follow in His steps, we also will strive for a proper balance. Work hard when it is time to be busy. Relax when it is time to rest. Do that and you will enjoy and be more productive at both work and rest. Trust God to know when to start and when to stop, and be joyful in your work and your play.
