What You Invest

The violinist was bored. During a concert, the orchestra in which he played was being directed by a guest conductor most orchestra members thought was uninspiring. Like many others, the violinist admitted that he was just going through the motions.

Then for some reason, he decided to throw himself into the piece. Instead of being half-hearted, he started to care and exerted maximum effort. Suddenly, everything changed. Instead of being detached, he found himself involved. He described it as kind of a “spiritual experience.”

Many people have similar attitudes toward their jobs, homes, relationships, and even their Christian lives. They’re just going through the motions and doing as little as possible.

In church when they don’t seem to get anything out of a sermon, they blame the pastor. When they are bored on their job, they blame the boss. If they are unhappy in their marriage, they blame their spouse. In fact, often they just complain about everything.

They forget that the Bible says we reap what we sow. In other words, we determine the kind of harvest we are going to receive in every area of life.

Ask yourself what you are sowing with your time and resources. Are you giving minimum effort or your full effort? Are you doing everything as unto God? Ask Him to help you have the right attitude and invest aggressively in His Kingdom by giving your all in whatever you do.
