Even so faith, if it has not works, is dead, being alone.  James 2:17

Imagine a God who gave you everything you wanted every time you asked Him.  Most of us would like a God like that.  But what would happen if that actually occurred?  We would be so surrounded by self that we couldn’t see anything else.  In a way we would be like a man who could only breath in.

Imagine on the other hand though a man who has decided to only do good works in his life.  Someone who always just gives and gives and gives.  Eventually this type of person has nothing left to give.  This would be like a man who only breathes out.

To live we need to breathe in and breathe out.  We need to go to God and breath in His gifts and then in order to continue to live the life that God has given us we need to breath out the life God has shared with us to others.

Breathe in, breathe out.  Breathe in, breathe out.

“You heavens above, rain down righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness grow with it; I, the LORD, have created it.  Isaiah 45:8
