While my wife and I were under the weather a couple weeks ago, we had to really prioritize how we spent our precious energy. We couldn’t accomplish nearly what we wanted to because we were physically limited. But it’s not only when we’re sick that we have to use our energy wisely. The truth is: every day we have a balancing act to perform in our lives.

We always have more people and things clamoring for our attention and energy than we can acknowledge. And during this time of year, it seems like our culture, which already presents us with many distractions, becomes filled with distractions. So, this time of year, it’s so important for all of us to have our priorities in order.

Whatever your priority is this holiday season, remember the reason we are able to celebrate during all seasons – God’s love and mercy expressed through Jesus. And as tempting as it is to stay busy during this time, even as you spend time with family and do acts of service, remember to make taking care of yourself, loving yourself, a priority. That’s not selfish. It’s necessary. Taking care of you is the only way you can continue to build man and advance the kingdom. God loves you. I love you. You be sure to love you, too!
