18/365: Faith Requires Effort

All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads only to poverty.  ~ Proverbs 14:23

Men are wired to work.  We know how to  earn wages to pay for food and shelter.  We know that talking about our job doesn't get the job done.  We have to do the work.

Faith requires us to do more than talk.  If we want results, we need to get our hands dirty.  To be rich in faith is to see God at work through our hands and feet. 

We work not to gain faith, but our work is inspired by our faith.
