Are you actively inactive?
I was reading this week about a research study at a university in Germany on idleness, and the term "active inactivity" was used several times. This study was looking for participants who could do nothing and they were offering a substantial grant for 3 people to do just that.
That term active inactive got me thinking about our Christian walk, and whether it might summarise where we are right now. We're active, we're doing things, we're busy and appear to be close to God, but perhaps the reality is different than that? Maybe we are inactive when it comes to the things that matter to God - personal time with Him, sitting still to hear His soft whispers, sharing the gospel with those around us and so much more.
1 John 2:17 is a great reminder about keeping a kingdom perspective when it come to what is important to God - "And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever."
So let's make sure that we are active in the things which make a difference, which shine the light of Jesus into the world, and inactive in those temporal things which will pass away.
