The key to being holy and unblameable before God is not how many sermons we listen to, how many chapters in God's Word we read daily, how we dress, or what convictions we hold to. All of these are important, but if "I have not charity, I am nothing." How is our attitude towards those around us? We can do all "the right things" externally, yet be selfish, arrogant, judgmental, and unloving.
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven...He hath made every thing beautiful in his time..." Ecclesiastes 3:1, 11a
God's timing is always best, because He is all wisdom and understanding. He sees that which we do not see; He knows all of the details of what surrounds us. Do we trust Him?
I know I've shared this verse before, but it does me good to be reminded to spend my day -- not just serving, but with GLADNESS. And then the latter half seems to be a key with how to do that -- because I can't sing praise to God and grumble as I work at the same time.
