Impulsive? Never!

24 04 2009

In Teams@Work, the International Teams Australian newsletter, Janice Collins wrote an article on Touch – the tangible sense that we are not alone. And one of the paragraphs really struck me. I love the Garage Hymnal tune to the hymn, “Take My Life and Let It Be” by Frances Havergal in 1874. The hymn includes the line “Take my hands and let them move at the impulse of thy love”. Janice reflects: “Impulsiveness can be seen as a negative trait, but imagine if all our actions were at the impulse of God’s love. Our selfish actions with undesirable consequences would disappear and be replaced by tangible evidence of God at work through us.”
