Psalm 25:14 ” The Lord confides in those who fear Him; He makes His covenant known to them.”

As a Christian we look at the world and its needs and can become overwhelmed with all the volunteer opportunities available. Don’t get me wrong, they’re all good service projects coming from legitimate needs in the community…but the problem is, we think we can do them all! And very soon our time is spread so thin doing all this good we’re not giving any of them our full attention. This also includes volunteer positions we been doing for years and years. Yes, they’re comfortable and enjoyable projects… and because we’ve been there so long we’re honored and esteemed by others…but is that the only reason we continue volunteering there? If you think about all the service projects you’ve done throughout the years…all the times you’ve said Yes to volunteering somewhere, I dare say most, if not all, were something that you were comfortable with, caused no inconvenience, and fit into your schedule. But God wants to challenge you today…or as Oswald Chambers wrote, “Beware of paying attention or going back to what you once were, when God wants you to be something that you have never been.”
