Check Engine Light
I am quick to want to have it checked. I don't want to break down on the road.
It made me ponder how quick I am with other check engine lights in my life. Am I swift to respond to them?
We know we need to care for all areas of our lives to keep balanced.
Spiritual – Reading God's Word, praying, attending church, praising God
Family – Keeping open communication, forgiving, sharing time, loving
Emotional – Spending time with friends, reading uplifting books, having the ability to laugh with others and laugh at ourselves, knowing our purpose and setting ourselves on the path towards it
Health – Eating right, exercising, getting regular check-ups, proper sleep
Finances – Proper stewardship of what we have, not overspending, sharing what we do have, giving to the kingdom of God
This is not an exhaustive list, just a few things to get you thinking.
Is your engine fine-tuned?
Have you been ignoring the check engine light in any of these areas?
