John 10:10, NIV; The thief comes only to steal and kill and
destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
We may have forgotten that Jesus came to give us freedom and life abundant. We were not
created to be a slave to life but to have life, and life more fulfilling. There is so much
of what we claim we have to do for one reason or another that seems to be sapping the life
right out of us, making us tired and often less of the light of the world than
we could be if we werent exhausted all of the time. God designed us as such that we
flourish when we are balanced in our living. We will be at our best--for everyones
sake--when we are applying wisdom to our living.
