In a visual world it is second nature to count, collect, and compare what is seen. It seems natural to desire more and from a young age we do. We believe that 72 crayons are better than 12, even if we only use 6. We compare important things too: ministries, callings, follower, and bank accounts.
Yet God only asks us to be faithful. To walk the steps of on our own dance. Yet many of our moves we learned by watching those around us, and loose our partner in the process. Faithfulness is often un-noticed, trite, and hard.
