Are you so drained from work that you have little energy to give your kids? It is time to redefine success.
Parents tell me that one of their greatest challenges in raising their kids today is that they’re just worn out.
The American Family & American Dream
Yet much of this exhaustion comes from the self-inflicted wounds of business and workaholism— trying to have it all. They’ve turned the American dream into a nightmare when money and stuff become their gauge for success.
But life’s a trade-off. An undue emphasis on financial success too often negatively affects our families and our health. Proverbs 24:17 says, “Don’t wear yourself out to get rich. Have the wisdom to show restraint.” There’s always more time to make a buck, folks. But each passing day is one less day we have to impart wisdom to our kids while cultivating lifelong relationships with them.
