A chasing after the wind…
When we seek to be fulfilled by what we do and not by who we are.
As a friend of mine said, as long as we are seeking for joy and happiness we will have nothing to offer anyone. If we have trusted our souls to the works of Christ, we have been adopted into a family which overflows with life, love, and joy.
But when we take our eyes off of this and think we have to DO something to become valued, we miss the point and live like orphans in search of approval. No, we don’t need significance. We need a revelation of our inert value which will bring its own contentment. And then everything we seek to do will come from already being significant – and not striving to earn it.
