Achieving A Double Dose Of Pleasure By Taking Care Of Business

In this USA Today article by Peter Dunn, Mr. Dunn reports that Americans have an unhealthy obsession with pleasure spending, but we can achieve a double dose of pleasure by taking of business first (setting priorities - Matthew 6:33).

He illustrates:

"Runners often talk about something called runner’s high. It does seem a bit crazy that a person can feel actual pleasure from exercising vigorously, but apparently you can. The pleasure is delivered via a rush of endorphins and endocannabinoids in the midst of the workout. Despite what Sir Mick Jagger might suggest, it appears you can get what you want and get what you need. You want pleasure and you need exercise. Voila! You get both, when you do it the right way.

The same is true for your financial life. You can achieve pleasure – deeply satisfying pleasure – by taking care of business first."

Beloved, in running the Christian race, we can achieve a double does of pleasure - a deeply satisfying pleasure - by taking care of the Lord's business first (Luke 2:49).
