Butterfly or Bee?

Don’t just skim the surface; dig deep. Two common field insects illustrate: One, beautifully adorned, dances from flower to flower impatient for where to sip ready nectar. The other, less attractive, is more businesslike. Where he finds the flower-cup closed, he pries open; where deep, he goes down to the bottom. He’s thorough, overcoming all obstacles to find or make honey. “The one died last October. The other is warm in his hive, amidst the fragrant stores he has gathered” (James Hamilton). Are you a butterfly or bee? Shallow or deliberate? Engaged in mere activity, and not productivity? For success—in your work, studies, personal or spiritual life—don’t settle for the superficial; go deep (Matthew 7:24-27).—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
