Burning Bright or Burning Out?

Through the Looking GlassConsider 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 don’t want to put in the time, the thought, or the perspiration to make our busy-ness really count.

CandleThe same can be said of the Church.

For all of our 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 of believers?

Are you burning bright, or burning out?

Remember, only what is done for Christ will really last.
