From the Commonplace Book

The greatest thing is a life of obedience in the routine things of every day life. No amount of fine feeling can take the place of faithful doing. - William Barclay
There must be a hundred people who know what needs to be done for every one who is prepared to do it. - Thomas Sowell
Obedience in the routine things? Does that sound like motherhood or what?!

I'm thankful for the message in the book "Just Do Something" by Kevin DeYoung (see the books read in June post for more). We Christians like to rationalize our inactivity (usually with some variation of "I'm waiting to see God's will in this matter...") but the Bible is already full of things we are supposed to be doing, things like loving God with all our heart, spending time in His word, praying, gathering together with other Christians, singing, encouraging others...obviously I could go on. And on.

My point is, we really already know what we ought to be doing, we just so often choose not to do it.
