I have a list of books I want to read RIGHT NOW that probably stacks up to about as high as I am tall. Okay I know I'm not that tall, being only 5'1" but still that is quite the stack of books.
I wonder sometimes why God leads us to books to read yet also gives us lots of interesting work to do for Him that keeps us from our reading list. Of course I'm learning that He needs us to do both. We can't just sit back and fill our minds with all this knowledge He asks us to gather and not be willing to be out there in the ranks doing His work.
Thus the challenge of balance!
