A Honey Bee…
While in flight the other day I read an interesting statistic: An average honey bee will produce approximately 1/13 of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime.
While some may think this is insignificant…it is not. The one bee understands that his part contributes to the greater good of the whole and so she works feverishly to pull her weight and complete her life-long (about 6 weeks) mission.
It got me thinking. What will I produce in a lifetime? What will you produce in a lifetime? What will we invest ourselves in wholeheartedly? What tribe, or hive, will we become a part of where we may not be everything, but at least we can add our 1/13 to the greater good?
The Kingdom of God isn’t about “what’s in it for me”…it’s about how can I serve what’s in me to the world. Get involved somewhere. Start producing something for the greater good of the Kingdom. Get busy investing yourself in His work!
PS – Don’t worry about the critics…they don’t produce…they pollute.
