I have not been a good friend. I have used you without giving sufficiently to you in return.
I have been active. But, I am exhausted. I jumped in too quickly. I did too much when I was weak. I thought doing more and more would strengthen me.
I feel inadequate.
I want more from you. I am unhappy with different parts and how they perform. I have looked at you in disgust. I have complained.
I tended to your needs. I jumped at opportunities. I always left feeling that the experience could be better.
Please forgive me for being covetous.
I will invest in you.
I will not throw in the towel. Don’t give out on me.
Reread the letter. I wrote it to the church- the "Body of Christ."
This morning during my workout, I drew a parallel between my body and the church. I've been thinking about the way I view church- both my positive and negative reactions. I've been thinking about how my giving. I give but not always in the right ways and not always adequately. It's a matter of the heart. I'm working on it.
