The Age-Old Theme: Doing vs. Being

I'll have some thoughts on this later. For now I'll let these words speak for themselves as I chew on them and hold them up to my own heart:

"Somehow I was letting what I was doing for God give me purpose, instead of simply being His child. I must have believed that by doing more, I could prove my love to God, earn His love and feel good about myself. The problem is, the older you get and the more your faith matures, the more you realize you’re not a super hero or a super Christian, but just a big, worthless windbag of sin."
