Easy Christian Solutions to Life’s Problems
If there’s one thing that can be said with certainty about life, it’s that it is not easy. We are beset with problems at every turn, and not all of them have visible or viable solutions. So unless we learn how to cope with them, we’re going to end up becoming victims of stress. I’ve learned through experience that one of the best ways to deal with stress and reduce its detrimental effects on our life and our health is through religion. Spirituality can work wonders in helping you find solutions to life’s problems, so if you’re looking for answers, here are a few Christian solutions to the common ills that plague you:
· M Money: It’s not an exaggeration to say that the world revolves around money. Without this manmade concept of riches, we would have no life. And even though money is not everything, we do need enough of it to live satisfactorily. So if you’re having money trouble, the best way to get over it is to analyze your spending habits and make the necessary amends. Remember the parable of the talents where God rewarded his servants who had used their money to make more money and punished the one who was too cowardly to invest it wisely? Well, there’s a lesson we can learn from this story – it pays to spend less than what we earn and also put away an amount that accrues interest and will stand us in good stead in the event of a rainy day.
· R Relationships: No man is an island and we need other people for our emotional and sometimes even physical needs. Whenever any relationship in your hits a problem or goes through a bad patch, all you need to do is remember the commandment that says – Love your neighbor as you love yourself – the neighbor here refers to your loved one. And when you love them as much as you love yourself, you see things in a different light. It’s not all about you and you’re able to understand their feelings as well. This positive outlook changes your relationships for the better.
· W Work: To be successful at work and avoid problems at your workplace, all you need to do is take heed of the fourth commandment – Observe the Sabbath as a holy day and work diligently on the other six days of the week. When you follow this to the letter, you not only get all your work done efficiently and on time, you also prevent yourself from falling prey to stress and overwork by taking adequate rest and rejuvenating yourself on Sunday.
Our lives revolve around money, friends, family and work, not necessarily in that order. By using lessons from the Bible wisely, it’s easy to solve any problems we may face.
