Good. Works. We are called to do them; we are called to be them. Good works are a response to God’s love; they do not earn God’s love. Good works are a response to grace; they do not earn it.
Good works are the way we say “Thank You” to God for all the blessings bestowed on us by God; they are the way we live out our gratitude for life and love. Good works are the hands and feet of the good news of Jesus.
Good works are necessary for me because as I have learned in sobriety, “I can keep what I do not give away.”
Not a sermon, just some musings…
