What Are You Passionate About?

In Uncategorized on April 25, 2010 at 9:33 pm

There are lots of things you can do. You have the ability, you have the tools, you have the knack. But are you passionate about these things? Are you doing them just because you can do them and is this really the best use of your time?

Let’s say you own a pool. Each year you have to open the pool in season and close the pool out of season. Each week you have to check the pH levels and adjust. Each day you have to clean it. Or you can pay someone to do all of this for you while you use the time to do something you are passionate about.

God gives us all responsibilities. If you own a pool you had better take care of it. To do anything else would be to ignore what God has entrusted you with. But taking care of it doesn’t always mean doing the work yourself. If you earn the money you use to pay someone to do the work for you then you are faithfully accepting the responsibility you have been given.

So what are you passionate about? Where are you focusing your time and finances and, ultimately, your heart? What can you let go of? For me, it’s drywalling. I’m done with it.
