What You Can Do vs What You Must Do

There are things that we can do, and then there are things that we must do. If you were to survey your life, which of the 2 do you think would be consuming the majority of your time, energy, and resources?

Too often, we find ourselves being consumed by what we can do (regardless of whether or not we should be doing it). On the other hand, there are things that we must be do (regardless of whether or not we feel up to doing it at any given moment). Perhaps the difference between the 2 is a maturity of perspective. On the one hand, a child isn’t concerned with the “must do” things of life. However, a more mature person (not to be confused with an “adult”!), is concerned with what must be done — in regards to his/her family, faith, work, and community.
