Thoughtful deeds

“Truth is given, not to be contemplated, but to be done. Life is an action—not a thought. And the penalty paid by him who speculates on truth, is that by degrees the very truth he holds becomes to him a falsehood.” — Sermons Preached at Trinity Chapel, Brighton by Frederick W. Robertson Volume 1 by 1861 Tauchnitz

I suggest that, like faith and works, life is both a thought and deed.  The trouble begins when there is an absence or paucity of either. 

The ONE THING for today: Action will be required of you today. Be thoughtful but not timid. Action to early or late is wasted action, but action connected to the correct opportunity is where you get your greatest return.

  1. 👍 I thought that Teddy Roosevelt’s one thing tied in with your ONE THING today. 🙂

    This morning I had read the devotional from the 9/28/21 “Word for You Today” (I read ahead lol). I liked the quote it used from President Theodore Roosevelt: “There is nothing brilliant or outstanding in my record, except perhaps this one thing. I do the things I believe ought to be done. And when I make up my mind to do a thing, I act.”

    Blessings, Claudia
