We know our giving is in our serving one another in community. But, oh, what a balancing act that can be!
Where do we find time to knit prayer-filled stitches into a shawl for a new mother down the block? To coach the Sunday school children memorizing their lines for the pageant? To bake (and mail) family-favorite cookies for siblings far away? All the while, probably, keeping up with a full schedule at the office. It would be good, too, to get out for a walk if not to the gym. Sound familiar?
Centering our life means we won’t get to everything on our to-do list. It means we will trust God’s guidance and give up, humbly, our most earnest agendas.
