Worldly engagements require that I operate along lines to meet peoples expectations. Those can be really difficult to accomplish. Unmet expectations lead to bitterness, anger and resentments — and that’s a two way street.
Godly engagements require that I operate along lines meeting God’s expectations.
“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Mt. 11:30
If I show up as a volunteer. I’ve done my part. God does the rest actually.
If I show up full of anxiety, and plans, worries and agendas that I want to accomplish, those are my choosing, they are my burden. God didn’t ask me to carry them.
