Doing and Being

Doing is usually connected with . . .  how we make a living. (Source unknown)

When we meet someone, we often ask, “What do you do?” We’re interested in their vocation or career. But, what is more important, of course, is how a person lives. The unknown source of today’s quote completed the thought this way: “Being is much deeper [than doing]. It relates to character, who we are, and how we make a life.” Live above reproach with scrupulous integrity.

I know, my God, that you examine our hearts and rejoice when you find integrity there (1 Chronicles 29:17).
