How to put faith, hope and love into action


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times Without God we can do nothing, especially if what we seek to do has a spiritual and moral purpose. Human beings all too often think that they can improve the world through their own actions, but has history has repeatedly shown, our achievements are often counterbalanced by our failures, by the unintended consequences of the plans we put into motion. The truth is that humans cannot make the world a better place on their own, and they certainly cannot make their eternities better on their own. No, without God's guidance and involvement the first is bound, at best, to be mixed bag of success, failure, progress, regression, advancement, inequity, triumphant and tragedy, and the second a complete failure. With God's guidance and involvement, however, success builds on success as we grow spiritually and, by doing so, improve the world around us because we ourselves have been improved through the grace of God. So before we go out to change the world or even just our little corner of it, seek God's guidance and let Him lead you as go you into action. By doing so, you will become a better person and help inspire others to become better persons by trusting in God and improve your own little corner of the world and through it the world as a whole by putting God back in charge where He belongs. It will also do wonders for your eternity.
