Do you ever confuse what you need with what you want?
It's so easy to focus on what we want first. When what we want is a noble goal or a focused vision, that helps. When what we want is to play when we should be working, or to eat when we should be exercising, or to gossip when we should be supporting, that can be a problem.
Sometimes what we want doesn't match what we need if we think what we need doesn't matter.
What we truly need does matter. Neglected, it matters even more.
Without getting into too deep of a philosophical discussion, I like to keep in mind that my faith has more to do with how others will perform than it does about my own performance. Sometimes we can get burned expecting people to do more than they do, but for the most part people's performance depends much on what our expectations are.
Faith is more about your hope for others than for yourself.
Your hope for yourself does include faith, and also hard work, constant learning, and openness to feedback.
Who are you showing faith in today? Do they know it?
