Read. Write. Think. Dream. Do.

January 14, 2022

[Please Note: this is part five of a five-part series; feel free to review the previous four anytime.]

Let me serve these up and get out of the way for a moment —

For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. (James 1:23-25)

But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. (James 2:18)

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth. (1st John 3:18)

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. (James 4:17)

— So as a late-night talk show host used to say, “Let’s get busy!”

But with this in mind, from Peter Drucker: “It’s more important to do the right thing than to do things right.” (I’ll bet we come back to this one, don’t you?)

And so: what’s your next action step right now?
