Generosity in quotes: Meg Biallas

“If we are to be truly engaged in our church, our community, with our neighbors we must (a) be willing to commit the time to it, and (b) be okay with the long and boring parts. And, John Wesley warns, we must avoid burnout:

Unless God has raised you up for this very thing, you will be worn out by the opposition of men and devils. But if God be for you, who can be against you? Are all of them together stronger than God? O be not weary of well doing!

Serving is not sexy. It’s not always easy . . . God is writing a story, and not every page will be an action scene.”

  1. That is a great encouragement, especially the being okay with the long and boring parts 🙂 Thanks!

  2. Agreed about the importance of being okay when service feels ho-hum. I like Meg’s reminder that not every page of God’s story for our lives is action-packed. Sometimes the work to which God calls us is just plain ordinary.
