Striking a chord

In conflict, there are often items that strike a chord.  In the moment it may not be possible, but do not forget the items that upset you. Go back and think through why these things were upsetting and work through them with a trusted friend.  A good friend can help you see the real issues.

In vain

“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat — for he grants sleep to those he loves.”

Psalm 127:2

Why do we work so hard to get ahead?  Is it for our own sake (pride)?  Is it for security?  Does money provide ultimate security?  Does knowledge?  Ask someone with both money and knowledge.  You may find pride. You might not find security.
