Overly religious

I use this blog as a way to inform others about my thoughts and my life.  I have to say that spirituality plays a huge role, which is why I am constantly posting scripture or telling you all to download a Joyce Meyer podcast.

Joyce's podcast yesterday talked about how people can be overly religious.  It's funny hearing a sermon from a pastor about that.  However it made a lot of sense.  "Deliverance from a Deceived Mind" is the name of the podcast and it reminds us that while we can talk the talk, we need to focus on walking the walk.  That is why Christians are looked down upon so harshly these days, because they can judge and spit out scripture but they can't bare to help those in need or be a comfort in another's life.

So let's get real.  We're all human, we all make mistakes.  But a lot of the time we get so caught up in our own world that we barely manage to notice what struggles other people may be living or enduring.  If you're at peace with your faith and with most aspects of your life, stop worrying about the petty and start putting those emotions into helping others who really could use a friend to lean on!  So that's my personal advice for the day.  Really I'm saying it on here to reiterate it to myself, but if you all get something out of it then it's like icing on the cake.
