How do you give attention to work and family life?

It is such a challenge for me to balance work and life. I’ve heard it described before as a tension, and a scale. One will have to lack. How do you decide which one does?

    Neither should suffer. A healthy family will make you a better leader. And a strong organization or ministry will always desire you to be all that God wants in every facet of life.

    Probably it is not right to think that either of the two should suffer. We want to have a healthy family to assure that we have effectiveness in work. Meanwhile we do our work to provide for our family – but if our work is destroying our family, the makes all the work in vain, doesn’t it?

    Even if the work we are doing is “ministry” – still we must make sure that maintaining a healthy family is at the top of a priority list. If we fail to care for our family, how can we care for the household of God (1 Tim. 3:5; 5:8)?
