When Should We Play it Cool?

Sometimes people prefer to play it cool.  You know, just wait and see what happens.  Release control.

Others want to make it happen.  Proactivity.  Set it up for success.

As a person of faith, both are important…if applied appropriately.

I think God calls His people to anticipate good things, to be proactively prophetic in a world of woes.  “Kingdom Entrepreneurship” as my mentor calls it.  Do not be passive; go and fight for the purposes of God.

But ultimately we aren’t in control.  When things don’t go our way, or if the right path is not yet clear, an utter reliance upon God is the way to go.  There is a time to wait…to retreat…to pray.

What does this balance look like in your life?
