Enough Talk

Enough talk…what are you going to do about it?

You see the problem or issue or opportunity or challenge. You’ve talked about it with your friends. Perhaps, if this issue concerns what others are—or are not—doing, you’ve gone over the line and gossiped about it. (I know that never happens.) The question is, “what are you going to do about it?” Or, if you are talking to yourself like I am right now, “What am ¬I going to do about it?” If the answer is “nothing,” then why even talk about it? Why do we waste our time talking about something that we have no intention of making better when there’s plenty in our lives that needs our attention? There are people around us who need our help and there are plenty of opportunities for us to contribute to our families, co-workers, churches, clubs, etc.

Yet, many of us, will just sit and complain about something…and never lift a finger to change it. We are all messed up so it is no wonder we spend so much of our lives focused on things that don’t amount to much at all. I pray that God gives me the vision to spend my time helping others meet their challenges. I pray that my focus is on things I can actually influence for good and that I DO actually influence that situation for good.

Talking is good if it pushes your life or the lives of those around you forward. But, the real question is “what are you talking about doing?”   –  Brian Kruckenberg
