(Pro 31:3 KJV) Give not thy strength unto women, nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings.
Priorities are difficult to manage. Here Lemuel’s mother warns him about the power of family relationships to get us out of focus. She talks specifically about women. As a woman she knows how often they can draw men away from the call that God has on their lives. I am sure it works the other way. I know that children can pull at our heart strings and distort our plans.
So many ways to go wrong.
This does not mean that we are not to love, care and reach out. It means that we are to keep things in context.
So? Who is going to try to get a piece of your action today? Wife? Boss? Neighbor? The possibilities are endless. Keep your focus on the path God has for you.
