Are You A Juggler?

Work, health, marriage, kids, friends, church, ministry, hobbies and the list goes on. 

We all juggle a full day, every day.

Colossians 3:23-24 23 "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ."

If you drop the ball in one of the areas that you are juggling will it bounce back or shatter?  If you don't, you probably treat it as if it's glass.  Drop the ball at work, you will probably recover.  Drop the ball at home and maybe not.  So how do you juggle? 

1 - Should you be juggling a particular area of your life?  Some answers to this question are no-brainers.  Marriage, family, and others.  But you may be putting a lot of time into something that really isn't going to reap a long-term benefit to you.  

#2 - Are you doing it right?  Every watch a juggler throw an apple, an ax and a bowling ball in the air?  They can do it, but not for long.  Why?  The bowling ball takes too much effort, the apple is awkward and the ax.  Well . . .  Some areas of your life may need to be redefined so you can manage them better. 

#3 - Are you giving the areas of your life the attention God wants you to give to them.  In other words, can you say that you are doing Col. 3:23 - 24 in each area of our life?  If the answer is no.  Then ask the Holy Spirit to help you do better. 

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I am a juggler, but only You can make me great at it.  I need Your help today.  AMEN
