See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise.  --Ephesians 5:15

'As you pursue a circumspect lifestyle, avoid the tendency to replace the secular hamster wheel with some kind of Christian version. The Christian life is not a hamster wheel at all; running furiously with no destination in view. Set clear goals that are biblical, spiritual, and eternal. Determine what steps are necessary to accomplish those goals, and pursue them wholeheartedly.Back away from impulsive decisions and spontaneous reactions. Avoid feverish schedules and suffocating task-lists. Instead, approach life with the sensible guidance of God’s Word and the calm confidence of quiet prayer. Wait on the Lord and depend on the Spirit. Plan to work hard, serve conscientiously, and rest intentionally at regular, appropriate times. I am thankful for a professor in college who frequently said, “When you study, really study. And when you take a break, really take a break.” This was terrific advice' (Thomas Overmiller)
