stepping up

faith AND works...

like bringing color to black and white

Years ago I was part of a small group for great discussions but limited action on what was learned. We had many detours and an early end. Were any of us better because of it? In some ways I’m sure we were, but imagine what could have been accomplished and learned if we had really stepped up.

We can all talk a good but unless we take some action what does it matter? If you have compassion for those in need but don’t help any, does your compassion even matter?

I can already hear one of you agreeing by saying, “Sounds good. You take care of the faith department, I’ll handle the works department.” Not so fast. You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove. James 2:18
