That is the key… IMPLEMENTING THE PLAN!
The Bible is clear that we are to be “doers of the word, and not hearers only…” (James 1:22) It is clear that talk is cheap… Proverbs 14:23 tells us that “In all labor there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to poverty.” Do you see the emphasis on IMPLEMENTING THE PLAN?
I say this as a coach, a parent, a minister, etc. We live in a world that seems content to have good intentions… where the typical response is “Yes, when I get a chance to get around to it.” Can I go into parent-mode for a moment? Well, I’m gonna… Delayed obedience is disobedience!
MAD Men and Women see a need and then immediately try to do something about it!
MAD Men and Women don’t just say “Amen”, they live it!
MAD Men and Women don’t just click the “Like” button, they act on it!
Does that mean you have to respond to every request made of you? No, we are not always in a position to personally Make A Difference, but when we can we should!
I recently posted a great need for a young girl in the Dominican that could walk again with our help. Many people have “liked” or even “shared” the status on the internet but only 3 have “acted” on the status… Can we add an “ACT” or a “Do something about it” button to Facebook? In our churches can we move beyond “AMEN” (which means “so be it”) to answering “I’ll do it!”
Let’s Go MAD!
IMPLEMENT THE PLAN!
