Ready. Set. Pray.
1 Kings 18:36-37 “…Elijah …prayed, “O Lord, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, prove today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant. Prove that I have done all this at your command. O Lord, answer me! …so these people will know that you, O Lord, are God…”

Prov.23:4 “Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint” [with emphasis]
God honours hard work and not ‘work-a-holism’. God wants you to work hard but He does not want you to be a workaholic. God wants us to be passionate about our professions but God does not want us to be obsessed with our professions. Obsessing about your work is unhealthy. Read the rest of this entry
