Taking Life Too Seriously

    I agree, joelbear. Good advice for all of us. I realized a few weeks ago that I cannot have any idle time without feeling guilty. I guess it comes from always "knowing" I should be doing more personal study, getting more hours, etc. Lately I have tried to free my mind enough that I can take the little extra time I get and do absolutely nothing with it, if I so desire. Amazingly, no lightning strikes me in return.

    I think maybe the mindset comes from being told over and over that we are personally helping to either prove Satan a liar, or disgrace Jehovah. Growing up thinking that the universe hangs in the balance of our daily actions has got to seriously F with our heads.
