Do the hard work you are called to do

You are called to do things that are hard and sometimes dangerous. You'll be at your best when you do them. When you don't, you might be so bored that you get into trouble.

That's what happened to David, when he was supposed to be leading his nation into battle. Because he stayed home instead of leading his troops, he was bored. When he saw Bathsheba, he got into trouble.

If you want to reflect more on this topic, watch the video below or see 2 Samuel 11:1-27.

God, help us to do the hard things that are good for us (and for our communities!). Thank you for making life such a great adventure. We praise you. Amen.
