There are so many things that we do believe that it is the right thing and the right way it should go which is not. We do forget that, as a Christan, we cannot do everything on our own. There should be a balance. there is a popular saying
Do your best and leave the rest which is the truth. You can only do your part and let God do his own part as well. Trying to do both parts will cause an imbalance which will bring a bad result and trying to leave everything to God without any effort will bring no result.
Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. - Psalm 127 vs 1-2
Remember to always balance it all up so that you can get a good result.
