Laodicea as My Archetype

I know your deeds [Laodicea], that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!  So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth. (Revelation 3:15-16 NIV).

Drifting –  lackadaisically going along with the current with no real effort whatever to steer the vessel or plot a better course: I must confess this has been pretty much my state over the past several weeks and I have grown to hate it.  Fortunately pastor David Miller presented a sermon Sunday that emphasized the importance of having one's hand upon the tiller resolutely translating ideas into action--otherwise even lofty ideas constitute little more than self-indulgent woolgathering adrift slothful meanderings. There is a sense in which we don't even know an idea until we have begun to implement it. For example, what is patience or what is courage without seizing opportunities to practice them?  Seek pointedly directed action today--whether it be a simple diet or a challenging budget.  Drifting without purpose or effective action will sooner or later wrap you in lethargy.
