We work, we play…we work, we play–but our spirits are neglected in the cycle. (William Wilberforce, 18th-19th century British statesman)
The 21st century doesn’t seem to be much different. Appearing to be successful, multitudes of businessmen and women are workaholics. They put in many hours of work, and when they take some time off, it’s usually to be involved in fitness or sports activities at great expense and exertion. Many of the same people sense loneliness and frustration for the lack of soul care.
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? (Matthew 16:26)
