What do you mean? I didn’t understand! I will explain.
How many are those that do or give their best, they make the effort to help at church, or the people, all of that is wonderful if all that you do coincides with all that you are.
How many in the doing appear to be a responsible, hardworking, zealous person but their interior isn’t always that way.
All the time and energy they spend on the doing, isn’t always used with the same intensity to “be” for God.
There never is time to stop and do a prayer, to read the Bible is always in a hurry, or when there is time there are other things that need to be completed, to meditate is impossible, work calls and it was all needed for yesterday. That is how the days go by, the weeks, the months and the person thinks that everything is okay because she is doing a lot, and they don’t notice that they are drifting away from God more and more.
My dear, the key word is balance, without it things don’t work out well, because you either end up to much to one side or the other and you will never find control.
So lets put priorities, the most important thing should always be in first place and everything else follows in proper order.
I am not saying that we wont do, even because we can’t give ourselves that luxury, since we have so many responsibilities and task to fulfill, but that can’t steal our precious moments with God, our personal search for Him, our meditation. Without it we can’t hear the voice of God and we will end up lost and misguided.
Be careful in hiding behind all the things we do, because your interior may be weak, cold, misguided due to the lack of investing in your spiritual life.
The work of God needs of people that work, but first of all of people that are strong spiritually, in communion with God, that way there will be fruit in the things that they do, did you understand now my dear?
So meditate in whether you have been what you have done for God.
Before anything else He wants you at His feet, He wants to be the first one in your life and the most important.
God wants the best of you and not the leftovers, think about it!
