Today I am thinking about the phrase the good is often the enemy of the best. In this fast-paced world it very easy for one to become over-committed to very good projects with all the best intentions. Unfortunately, all too often we also find ourselves running on empty and not giving our very best to anyone or any thing.
In my life I have been trying to pare down so that I can put more focus on what I’m beginning to refer to as my calling. (nothing mysterious there, it’s just what I an beginning to see as my purpose in this life)
I had a conversation with my husband last night as I was trying to decide about the best use of my time and talents in a certain area and this morning I am at peace with a decision. I want to give my best to an area that I feel called to; I can’t do everything and I don’t want to be spread so thin that I am of little use where it matters.
Think about your personal calling and any areas where the good may be stealing the best you have to devote to that calling. That is my challenge for today.
