Action Orientated...[146]

Those things you have both learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace shall be with you.
[Philippians 4:9]

In Jesus' day, many religious people were caught up in RITUAL and not RELIGION. The same is true today. The Bible was given to us, not primarily for information but for TRANSFORMATION~!
If our beliefs don't change our behaviour they are un-biblical, if our knowledge doesn't become applied knowledge it is un-bliblical and if our hearing doesn't result in action we are deceiving ourselves.
Be practical and put some action your life today.
  • Mend a quarrel.
  • Search out a forgotten friend.
  • Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust.
  • Write a letter.
  • Share some treasure.
  • Give a soft answer.
  • Encourage youth.
  • Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed.
  • Keep a promise.
  • Find the time.
  • Forego a grudge.
  • Forgive an enemy.
  • Listen.
  • Aplogise if you were wrong.
  • Think first of someone else.
  • Appreciate, be kind, be gentle.
  • Laugh a little more.
  • Express your gratitude.
  • Worship God.
  • Gladden the heart of a child.
  • Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth.
  • Speak your love.
  • Speak it again.
  • Speak it still again.
  • Speak it still once again.
