“Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but many of the things they make it easier to do don’t need to be done.” –Andy Rooney

We are guilty of Andy Rooney’s charge in other areas of our lives as well. We live in danger of being satisfied with doing the easy tasks and leaving the complicated ones alone. How many times in the church do we do the same thing?

Philippians 3:13-14 (ESV) “Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
