Knowing our limitations!

Once we realize our own limitations, and the frailties of our lives, will we learn how to put greater value, on the things that matter! (Ecclesiastes 4:6) We, well, most all of us, struggle with this. Basically it is called pride, no wants anyone to think we are inadequate. We want people around us to think well of us, so the last thing we want them to see is any weaknesses!

We have to come to terms with the fact we are limited. We cannot do it all, for ourselves and others. Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 4:6, Better a handful with quietness than both hands full, together with toil and grasping for the wind. Sometimes, we just need to admit, we need help. We need to learn, or just being quiet, and not jump at every opportunity. It is better to take what we have, than to take on more than we can truly handle!

As you read this today, as you stop and evaluate your life a little closer, are you content? Have you finished the tasks before you, or are you grasping at the wind, and accomplishing nothing? Better a handful with control, than two handfuls that keep you from grabbing the handrail before you fall.
