The Craftsman Mindset

Passion comes after you put in the hard work to become excellent at something valuable. (Cal Newport, So Good They Can’t Ignore You)

Do you see someone skilled in their work? They will serve before kings; they will not serve before officials of low rank.

~ Proverbs 22:29

How many times have you been told to “Follow your passion,” or “Just listen to your heart”?  Well, the truth is, this can be absolutely terrible advice! The Bible tells us that our unconverted passions lead only to darkness. Therefore, Jesus asks that we turn our passionate hearts over to Him. His plan is not to eliminate our desires but to transform them! As Jesus changes us at our core, we are able to release our passions through our work, our creativity, and our love.
