Ancient Wisdom for Discovering Your Sweet Spot in Life
Balance and contentment are in short supply in today’s culture. So how should we respond?
You need to meet Agur. His short, heartfelt prayer — the only prayer in all of Proverbs — just might rescue you from the extremes of our hectic times.
“Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.”
Notice. This quirky, little-known prophet doesn’t ask for more than he needs or less than he needs. But only his daily bread. (He goes on to explain why that’s important.)
Imagine finding new purpose and contentment in your work, personal ministry, and relationships. Open your heart to Agur’s wit and wisdom, and you can learn to
• escape imbalance
• overcome fear of failure and eliminate envy
• joyfully pursue your passions
• reap the eternal rewards of trusting God
• find your personal sweet spot
In our modern, busy lives, embracing balance leads us away from bad decision-making and the emotional cost of trying to do too much or survive with too little.
This engaging and practical book faithfully unpacks Agur’s humble prayer. Read it in an evening. Affirm it for a lifetime. Share it with those you love.
