012 – Shun Religious Performances

Beware the strong pull to make a show of your shadowing and shining.  Develop a strong allergy to the ‘be seen’ motive.  Your walk of mercy and justice isn’t for the purpose of making you look good.  It’s the audience of One you’re looking to now, his pleasure you’re trying to provoke.  Applause lures, but it also lies, and it will cause you to miss your real purpose.  Set your heart on that tin trophy and you will miss the real pot of gold.  Don’t settle for passing praise of the public, when that’s calling you sprint the other way.
