Policing others and I miss out myself

The children find it really hard to eat their medicines.

So I became the police to ensure they took their medicine.

To my horror and dismay, one morning I found that I missed my dosage.

I can’t remember how it happened. For I always make sure I ate before they ate.

The fact, I missed out my dosage.

Reminds me of what Paul says in 1 Cor 9:27

” No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”

We all need to be mindful that it’s possible to focus on others so much that we lost the goods ourselves.
