Deep Work, Deeper Faith

by bxrtley

I know what’s keeping me awake. Lately I’ve been writing about deep work and deliberate practice. But this quote came to mind:

Not by strength and not by power, but only by my Spirit, says Yahweh of hosts. Zechariah 4:6

Living a christocentric philosophy can seem paradoxical. Am I required to work hard? You bet. Multiple passages in Scripture support deep work and link laziness to poverty. But no matter how deep I plow and plant, I still need the sun, rain and photosynthetic process. Do the work. But consider the source. Honor it (or Him in my case).
