Being vs Doing
How many of us go out and DO for God before we even have discovered who we are in relationship with Him . . . the BE side of us. God calls us to first BE and then from who He made us to be He calls us to DO in relationship to Him. "Doing" without first "being" is like a plant growing tall without a strong root system - there is nothing to ground its activity and quickly it will fail. (Hmmm, sounds a lot like Jesus talking about the parable of the sower doesn't it?). "The higher the growth up, the deeper must be the enrooting." Much activity for God without first growth IN God will result in failed fruit.
Work on your just "being" with God today!
