We are dabblers most of the time. In most things in life, we simply skim along the surface and refuse to go deep. Relationships, work, and even our play don't get our full attention or our best efforts. For most of us in the West, even our faith is susceptible to this perfunctory treatment.
We float on the surface of the water, and then complain that it's hot and refuse to jump in for a dip.
We nibble at the skin of the apple and complain that it doesn't taste very good.
