Action & More Action
I drove to Abilene, TX (about 3 hours West of Fort Worth) yesterday for a service commitment and heard a speaker say in a lead that her sponsor had told her early on, “It doesn’t matter how you feel, it matters what you do.” For some reason, of all the great things she shared, that one hit me.
– “They had told of a simple religious idea and a practical program of ACTION.”
– “We have a way out on which we can absolutely agree, and upon which we can join in brotherly and harmonious ACTION.”
– “Then they outlined the spiritual answer and program of ACTION which a hundred of them had followed successfully.”
– “But the program of ACTION, though entirely sensible, was pretty drastic. It meant I would have to throw several lifelong conceptions out of the window.”
– “Next we launched out on a course of vigorous ACTION…”
– “This requires ACTION on our part, which, when completed, will mean that we have admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being, the exact nature of our defects.”
– “Now we need more ACTION, without which we find that “Faith without works is dead.”
– “It is easy to let up on the spiritual program of ACTION and rest on our laurels.”
– “We have begun to develop this vital sixth sense. But we must go further and that means more ACTION.”
– “As we go through the day we pause, when agitated or doubtful, and ask for the right thought or ACTION.”
– “But this is not all. There is ACTION and more ACTION. “Faith without works is dead.”’
Hmmmm… seems like the “doing” is kinda important (and the thinking, not so much)!
Have an active day today ya’ll!
