I read this article on a friend’s social media site, and it “spoke” to me. I grew up in a home where worth was based on works and accomplishments, and even now, I sometimes fall into the trap of believing my worth as a wife, mother, friend, and even as a Christian is based on a completed to-do list. “You’re not being measured by God by how much you get done.”
God’s priorities for efficiency in this life are not ours. His aim is not to provide the most direct route, but to sanctify the traveler.
