How Do You Know When to Stop?

Jan 30, 2022
We close out the month with another one of Solomon’s vivid word pictures in Proverbs 25:16. We help you find out what happens when we indulge and eat too much. This proverb isn’t just about how much we eat. You will learn that too much anything, even if it’s a good thing, can have serious consequences.
Bottom Line: Know when to stop. Knowing when to stop isn’t always easy for us. Often, it’s a parent or teacher who helps you realize it’s time to stop what you’re doing and take a break. We hope that you start to see that stopping something—even if it’s fun—can be the wisest choice you can make. We also want you to know you don’t need to do this on your own. God can help you know when to stop and give you the strength to do it.
