My wife shared a quote the other day that really resonated with me…  We’ve probably all heard the quote “Faith without works is dead” but if you’re one of the minority (ten or fifteen percent or so) of people who isn’t religious, much can be lost in the meaning because of your knee-jerk negative reaction to the word “faith”.  In addition, even if you do get it, the saying is used when talking about helping others.

How often have you come to a crossroads in your life?  How often have you decided that tomorrow will be the day that I change?  Tomorrow will be the day I lose weight, tomorrow will be the day when I finally hit the gym or go for a walk.  Tomorrow will be the day I quit drinking.  Tomorrow will be the day I quit cheating, lying or stealing…  Only to find that tomorrow never comes.  There is a flip-side to Faith without works is dead…  All of the willingness in the world and one dollar will get you a cup of coffee:

Willingness without action is fantasy.
