When’s the last time you stopped doing and thought about being? We can get so caught up in doing that we forget how to do the being. We forget to see who and what we are with and how that’s influencing us. We communicate with our family because that’s just what we’re supposed to do, yet how often do we think about enjoying being with them? We go to school or work because we need to, but do we think of how we’re influenced by what we’re being surrounded with – the lyrics in the restaurant or that overheard conversation? How about what type of influence we are being? What about God?
Are we so caught up in doing for God that we forget to be with God?
Micah 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD re-quire of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
Yes, our God wants us to do right things. He just doesn’t want us to do. He wants a walk with us through the actions. Let that sink in. God doesn’t just want us to do the right things; He wants to be with us. The God of the Universe loves us enough to not only want our holiness, but to want our heart; He wants to walk with us through life.
