The reality is though, microwave food doesn’t taste that great, compared to your mum’s dishes. All the time and careful preparation taken over a home cooked dinner becomes obvious in taste.
Time + effort counts.
Exactly like a lot of things we want in life. We have to be prepared to put the time and work in. Having the gift of faith for God to help you pass all your exams without putting any work into the revision - that’s not using your God-given abilities. & if we were to put time + effort, we got to make sure that love is at the centre.
Because if we’re not love-focused in what we do, it doesn’t mean anything.
