Quality of Life

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 14, 2011

“Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.” Proverbs 13:20

What does it mean to have quality of life? Good health? Harmony at home? A happy heart? Financial security? Freedom of speech and worship? A fulfilling career? Grateful and content children? A meaningful marriage? A life of significance? Peace with God? Probably some of these elements and more make up a life worth living—a quality life.

Moreover, the quality of our life is determined by the quality of our relationships. Who we spend time with is who we become. If we spend time with those wise in their finances and if we pay attention, we can become wise in our finances. If we are intentional in our faith, we will worship with those of great faith. Our life is a reflection of our relationships.

“Therefore I urge you to imitate me. For this reason I have sent to you Timothy, my son whom I love, who is faithful in the Lord. He will remind you of my way of life in Christ Jesus, which agrees with what I teach everywhere in every church” (1 Corinthians 4:16-17).

So, how is your relational portfolio? Are you diversified with people who bring value to all aspects of your life? Conversely, are you intentional to invest time and interest in those who look to you for guidance? Quality of life flows from not just receiving wisdom, but from giving wisdom. Wisdom works both directions for the good of the relationship.

Furthermore, be careful not to excuse bad behavior, because you are trying to relate to questionable company. Draw a line far away from eroding your character’s creditability. You can influence others for good, without being bad. In some situations, what you don’t do defines you more than what you do. Use business trips and vacations to model faithfulness not foolishness. Stand for what’s right—when others agree to what’s wrong.

“Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 15:33).

Above all, your quality of life results from your relationship with Christ. He is life itself and everything good in life flows from Him. When you grow in your personal relationship with Jesus—it affects the growth of your other relationships. Relationship building in heaven—builds relationships on earth. Ultimately, Jesus is the life to model and follow. The resurrected life of Christ gives you the spiritual stamina to experience a quality life.

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this”? Yes, Lord,” she replied, “I believe…” (John 11:25-27a).

Who are the wise people I spend time with? Am I investing in quality relationships?

  1. I am the co-founder of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and I am currently seeking to grow my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain can help me . I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anyone could suggest a qualified web site where I can get Vape Shop B2B Mailing List I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most ideal selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

    Next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, however I truly thought you would have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something you could fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.

  4. Aw, this was a very good post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  5. There’s certainly a lot to know about this topic. I really like all the points you have made.

  6. Right here is the perfect webpage for everyone who would like to understand this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for a long time. Great stuff, just great!

  7. This web site certainly has all of the information and facts I needed about this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
