I was going over an old journal of mine recently and came across a post that I wrote based
on a devotional I had read. The post was about the power of action or practice.
What are you practicing today or what are you taking action on today?
These are the questions the devotional was asking me to answer.
It’s not enough to listen to something and at times we can fall into the trap of thinking listening
is the main thing but it’s not. The change and the growth comes in the action, in the practice.
So we can attend the best workshops, and webinars, or read the top books in the industries we are in but
if there is no mindset of, “what do I need to act upon”, then growth and change won’t happen.
And when it comes to faith, James chapter two states that faith without works is dead. Faith is faith when action is applied.
Reading the word has some benefit but reading and acting upon the word is where the real power is.
The author of the devotional went on to talk about how we need both the abstract and the practical.
The abstract is the faith, the belief, the hope which are not tangible then there is the practical part which is the action or practice.
We need both.
So as I close, what are you practicing today?
Do you have both the abstract and the practical locked down?
Have a great weekend friends
