Which comes easier to you: to be with the Lord or to do things for God? Can we opt one and neglect the other? What happens if we opt to be in His presence but do not serve or just serve devoid of His presence? Acts 6:3-7
Lord, let us value time in Your presence because it equips us to serve Your people with wisdom and the Holy Spirit.
Lord, when we receive applause for acts of service, no one may see our time in Your presence, but give us grace to see our time with You as a significant investment for Your Kingdom.
