The Kingdom of God is often found in smallness and simplicity that invites each of us to see that even the most mundane events and the most ordinary people bear the image of God.
James tells us that "faith without works is dead (James 2:14)." Prayer without action related to the request is like plugging in a lamp but not turning on the switch. Sure, you've connected to the source, but you haven't ACTIVATED the power
"While we are awaiting the best of God, the fullness of the kingdom of heaven, we are called to PERFORM the kingdom."
