Too Much of a Good Thing

If you find honey, eat just enough – too much of it, and you will vomit. Proverbs 25:17

Give a kid a basketful of candy and watch him go to town. Can he down it all? Usually. But is it good for him? Absolutely not. We all know this and some of us have even done it ourselves. So, what was a good thing because sickening because of overindulgence.

That’s why we talk about a balanced diet or balancing exercise with nutrition. When one gets out of whack, we know it immediately.

Perhaps there’s an area of your life that you favor greatly to the exclusion of other areas; you’re obsessed by it. Perhaps you’re spending too much time on it; perhaps you need to step back and reassess. As always, if you don’t know what that one area is (and I suspect you do know), ask someone close to you and I’m sure they will have an answer for you. Find out what that area is and readjust your life accordingly.
