Interesting Thought


Sometimes we don't need another chance to express how we feel or to ask someone to understand our situation. Sometimes we just need a firm kick in the pants. An unsmiling expectation that if we mean all these wonderful things we talk about and sing about, then lets see something to prove it.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Beat me to it Kare. I agree whole heartedly.

I agree. All we (myself included) seem to do is talk and flap our gums. For example, there was a recent article that told of a man in the US who was a teacher for something like 17 years... who was illerate! This man knew how to talk.

Christ taught by putting his money where his mouth was. He proved it. He didn't sit around on a hill under a tree preaching all day (like some other "self-proclaimed gods", a-hem...), and not following up. He performed acts of faith that showed results. If we are to do his will, then come on people, let's DO it! (Who knew that the Nike corporation had it right this whole time!)

This is one of the reasons I really, really, really like Bonhoeffer ;)
