I’ve taken a break from blogging. I believe that when you work in an administrative, communications, or connections capacity – especially in the latter two – it is easy to slip into pride. It is so easy to see a facebook post doing well and think, ‘I made that.’ It is easy to see a connection – a person finding their fit, using their talents, being honored – and think, ‘I was a part of that.’ How often has my boss done something awesome and I think, ‘I helped him do that’?
But it’s not about me. It’s always, only, and ever about the God I serve. I don’t need facebook numbers. God is infinite. I didn’t make anything. God gave me the skill, the talent, the ability. And all I can do is humbly use what he gave me to give back to Him.
I recently (re) read the book “Every Good Endeavor: Connecting Your Work With God’s Work” by Tim Keller.
Always remember that it’s not what we do that should be most important, but why we do it and who we do it for.
