“More” is the motto of many in business. More sales, more profits, more money seems to be the true mission statement of many in Corporate America. The “Bigger is Better” philosophy has permeated our culture so much that many haven’t realized that “More” can lead to emptiness.
King Solomon experienced more of everything and eventually realized its futility. He was the wealthiest king ever, yet he felt empty. In Ecclesiastes 5:10 he wrote, “Whoever loves money never has money enough, whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.”
If you’re caught up in the fast treadmill of “more” in your work life, I suggest you pause and reflect on the fact that God has a mission higher than profits.

When our work is a holy calling and a ministry, it’s loaded with spiritual significance. All that time we spend at work has spiritual value. So while balance alone might redeem some hours, integration can redeem far more! Purchase here.
