Morning Nugget

I'm still reading "Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership".

Here's a little something that nailed me this morning.

"Earth's crammed with heaven,
and every common bush afire with God;
but only he who sees takes off his shoes-
the rest sit around it and pluck blueberries"

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

I don't want to run so fast that I miss the presence of God all around me. Blueberries are good, but not that good.

  1. I'm with you. I often wonder about the Martha/Mary debate.... Is it a better choice to choose worship, sure,,,,but then there is also work to be done. God's glory is manifested everywhere,,,and while I value a life of worship,,,I cant sit around all day and do just that. If we are truly doing all things as unto the Lord, I guess the worship comes with the work. Of course we labor all the days of our lives because sin entered the world.

    I guess it depends on how you define worship, which could simply mean that when I am doing the work, or the busy things, and the things I don't like,,, its really just my bad attitude that gets in the way of me glorifing God.
    I don't even like Blueberries.
