“Looking at culture, chronology, and current events through the eyes of faith.”
Making It Count
Consider this quote by Thomas Edison…
“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment, and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.”
That is so true. It seems that we latch on to every “get-rich-quick” scheme and promise of a quick buck, yet we don’t want to put in the time, the thought, or the perspiration to make our “busy-ness” really count.
The same can be said of the Church.
For all of our “wonderful” programs, are we ministering to the poor?
Are we saving the lost?
Are we making disciples?
Are we passing on what is important to the next generation?
After all, only what is done for Christ will really last.
So… are you burning bright, or burning out?
