Effort and attitude – I suspect most of us would value one more thatn tne other. But I suspect that most of us feel we need to give our energy to both. I also suspect that most of us would be better at one rather than the other when it comes to work and ministry. Have you been around people who have valued gifting over character – that rarely works out well in the end – many stories in the Bible attest to that. This time of the year there are lots of key sporting events – I heard one person say their approach was to win at all costs – lots of effort but not so sure on the attitude – but we can leave that blog for another day!
