To Do or Not To Do

Today I had the opportunity to lead our staff meeting.  What a team!  I’m so proud and privileged to be a part of the Northway Church staff.  As I prepared for the meeting I felt God speaking to me.  I’ve been so focused on what I do for the church, what I do for God.  I want to be productive.  I want to be effective.  Great thoughts and actions, but then it hit me.

What are you doing?  That’s always the question…a good one, a neccessary one.  It determines results.  Identifying what you do is definitely important.  It’s how you measure success.  It’s how you know if you’re doing a good job or not.  But I felt God asking me, “what are you NOT doing?”  I would argue that if you’re not identifying the things you’re NOT doing as well, you’re setting yourself up to fail.

Crazy to think about, but ask that question through every lens of your life:  your relationship with God, your marriage, your parenting, your friendships, your job, etc…

So what are you not doing?  What do you need to start doing?
