Be Reasonable …..

Always rejoice in the Lord. Again I will say, Rejoice!
===============================
The apostle Paul gives us a key to maintaining our joy when he says: “Always rejoice in the Lord. Once more I will say, Rejoice! Let your reasonableness become known to all men.” (Phil. 4:4, 5) To experience joy and satisfaction in our service to God, we need to cultivate reasonable expectations in the light of our own abilities and circumstances. If we strive to attain unreasonable goals regardless of the cost, we subject ourselves to undue tension. On the other hand, we should be careful not to become too lenient with ourselves, using our perceived limitations as an excuse for slowing down more than is necessary in the Christian ministry.
