Being Vs. Keeping Score

Many of us keep track of how much we weigh, how tall we are, what dress size we wear, or how much money we make. We might judge our progress by how many hours a day we pray or meditate or work out or calories we consume. We may keep a close eye on our back accounts and portfolios or be sure to always have the latest and greatest thing, the newest model of car. None of these things are bad in themselves, but a more accurate gauge of our life can be found in asking how comfortable we are with simply being without keeping score.
