Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

We spend a great deal of concern, energy, and passion on what we do.

Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Romans 12:6-8 TNIV

It's not that WHAT we do is not important; of course it is. But we spend so much time and passion on WHAT. Re-read those words that Paul writes us as Christ-followers. These are HOW words. Record books are filled with what we did, what we accomplished. But these words re-direct us to how we do what we do.

I trust it takes no counsel or encouragement to have you worry on WHAT you do. What if we heeded the Word of God and made our focus on HOW?
