The World's Way vs. God's Way

The World's Way (Taken from a Doritos bag):
"Do SOMETHING"

God's way:
"Do HARD Things"
"Be holy, because I am holy" 1 Peter 1:16
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
"What does the LORD your God ask of you but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to observe the LORD's commands and decrees" Deuteronomy 10:12-13

When my family and I recently saw a Doritos bag, we laughed. "Do something"......
hmm, I'm always doing "something". It was honoring those who were doing something. Of course, it wasn't meant to mean "do anything", but the words they chose made it laughable.

Have you just done "something" today, or did you do something hard?? Don't get lulled into doing simply what's easy, but rather, what's difficult.
I know, it's hard... :)

Now that I've said that, I need to go do my chores and practice piano...
