Thought for Today – Archie Boyle

Proverbs 1:32 Don’t you see what happens, you simpletons, you idiots? Carelessness kills; complacency is murder.

When do we become just another Christian in the ranks of the Church?

I ask this question because when I think of my own recovery walk I realise I have lost some of my early Christian boldness.

In the first few years of my recovery I was active in sharing my story in so many places and was given so many opportunities to do so.

Today my sharing is reduced to ‘Celebrate Recovery’ and my job as a ‘Crisis Support Worker’. Now, don’t get me wrong I love CR, my work at TSA Melbourne 614 and the opportunities both provide for sharing.

But, I can’t help but wonder when did my opportunities disappear, why did they disappear and what do I need to do today to bring rebirth to them?
