It's easy not to follow God when you are intent on serving him. Here are just a few examples.
(1) You start on a project without praying about it.
(2) You want to be in control of the project.
(3) You try to do the work all by yourself.
(4) You feel good when others see or notice what you are doing.
(5) You are excited about an idea and want to get started right away.
(6) You are so anxious to serve God that you neglect your family duties.
