“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2: 3,4 NIV

The conservative Irish parliamentarian of the 1700s, Edmund Burke, is most famous today from his quote; “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” History has been changed and will be changed because we choose to do nothing.
You don’t need to be a famous inventor, the creator of a new medical procedure, or making a billion dollar donation. All you need to do is to do something. Something alone may not be your guiding force. You need to do the right thing.
Doing the right thing is following GOD’S lead. How do you follow GOD’S lead? Start your day in HIS word. Read HIS Word faithfully. Then, pray. Pray over HIS Word. Pray for others. Pray for your needs. But, most of all…pray in thanksgiving for all GOD has blessed you with, for all of HIS answered prayers and for all HE will do for you.
Or be in denial and do nothing. Do nothing and that is exactly what you will have. Nothing! It seems like a easy choice. But, look around you. Look at all the people who have nothing. It is not just about material things. Look at the people who have no hope, no desires and you will find someone who has no faith.
Do nothing or do what GOD wants for you. You have a choice. Make the right choice.
Today’s prayer: “Thank YOU, LORD, for giving me the hopes and desires to do more than nothing. Thank YOU for the faith that comes only from YOU. Help me to day to do all YOU want me to do. Amen.”
