Faith is not belief. Belief is passive. Faith is active.

All the good you have

There are so many things to be thankful for, you cannot ever know what they all are. Though you face difficult problems, and life is not perfect, you have potential beyond anything you can comprehend.

Just in the last sixty seconds, processes you’ll never understand occurred within your body to keep you alive. You can see, think, hear, speak, take action, move from place to place, make choices and then act on those choices.

For thousands of years, people have acquired knowledge through unimaginable toil, pain, patience, inspiration, ingenuity, and heartbreak. Most of that priceless recorded knowledge is now immediately available to you with a few mouse clicks.

What you have is amazing. What will you do with it today, to live up to the limitless potential that’s right in front of you?

Gratitude is good, but woefully insufficient. Your own immense good fortune obligates you to so much more.

Be thankful that you have more to be thankful for than you can ever know. Put your gratitude into action, and discover how much more good you can do with all the great things you have.

— Ralph Marston
