Song of Solomon 1:6 Look not upon me, because I am black, Because the sun hath looked upon me: My mother’s children were angry with me; They made me the keeper of the vineyards; But mine own vineyard have I not kept.
Here is a good warning about being too busy with others. He did all the other work but didn’t have time to take care of his own responsibilities. He didn’t keep his own vineyard.
Many Christian workers have fallen into this problem. They have time for everyone’s family but their own. They take care of other marriages while theirs fails. They are so buys serving others that their own family goes to hell.
There is no reason for either to happen. We can take care of our vineyard and any other ministry God gave us. Someone said that duties never conflict. We can do what God has for us to do.
Do not fall into the trap of being too busy with others that you neglect your personal walk with the Lord. Do not fall into the trap of ministry and fail on the home front!
