You've filled my plate with the practice of humility toward self and love toward others. What need do I have to perform miracles?
I've not mastered my tongue, and the world of my thoughts needs constant discernment and correction. Should I desire to have marvelous and exciting experiences?
When I read the stories of Jesus, what do I do with his teachings? With his miracles? What forms me?
We want to learn his prayer that moves mountains, but not the one we need: "not my will, but yours be done."
What is the proper expression of the life of a Christ-follower? What are our expectations?
Do we have a misguided longing for the ostentatious, the impressive, and the gratifying? Will we wreck spiritually on the rocks of what appears grand, while missing that to which we've been called?
