What a weird word. It looks odd on the page. "Ear nest." "Nest-ness." Ok. Stop it.

One definition of "earnest" is: a serious and intent mental state, "a proposal made in earnest"

With such thinking, we could accomplish a lot - of construction or destruction.

Today as I plow through edits of another tutorial, I'm tackling them with earnestness. I may be up to my neck in bubbles in the tub, with a scented candle burning nearby, but I'm planning an earnest effort.

What requires your undivided attention?

*They made their offering to the Lord with a whole heart. 1 Chronicles 29:9 (NASB)

*Just as you abound in everything, in faith and utterance and knowledge and in all earnestness and in the love we inspired in you, see that you abound in this gracious work also. 2 Corinthians 8:7 (NASB)

Moravian Prayer: Holy Child of God, we contemplate what we will bring to you this season of birth and light. What will we offer you at the manger? Whatever gifts we bring, we will bring them with whole hearts and gratefulness beyond measure. Amen.
