Talk Through Action

🔥Speak Through Action

What does it mean to live life by working a spiritual program of action?

Let me start at the end and end with the beginning…

As a result of working the spiritual program of action as a design for living for many years I have learned the most important lesson in life…

I no longer listen to people’s words…

I listen to their actions.

Words talk lies, actions talk the truth.

How did I learn this?

I used to manipulate the truth and as a result walked this earth feeling like a fraud…

Obviously when your actions do not match your words you’re a fraud. Simple. That is what I was.

Guess what? We all do it! We do it until the pain of feeling like a fraud out weighs the pain of dishonesty and we have no option but to start telling the truth.

The first thing that had to happen was I had to learn and develop the principle of communicating through my actions.

I had to say what I do and do what I say…

Put in simple terms if I claim to work a spiritual program of action then I must communicate through the work I must do…

And I do the work…

Every day…

Doing the work is not reading a reading or praying a prayer or attending a meeting…

Doing the work is sacrificing my time, my own needs and plans and carrying this message to those who still suffer, intense work with other Alcoholics, giving up my spare time to go help someone who may need it…

The list could be endless…

Doing the work is being of maximum use to God and other people…

This makes me a useful person…

As a result I no longer feel like a fraud.

When was the last time you put your hand up to take care of the next 12 Step call that comes in?…

When was the last time you let it be known that you’re hungry to sponsor a new comer and give them what has been so freely given to you?…

When was the last time you did something that made you feel very uncomfortable in order to be of maximum use.

Or do you just leave all of this action stuff up to others to do while claiming to work the program?

When was the last time you communicated through your actions by doing what you say you do?

Share this with someone who may need to hear it.
