Active Faith By: Napoleon Hill

by Napoleon Hill 

Before the state of mind known as faith will produce practical results, it must be expressed in some form of action. 

Faith without works is dead. --James 2:20 

Have you ever kept a little garden spot of your own and had the experience of raising things? Anyone who has kept a garden knows that keeping out the weeds is a continual job. Somehow the weeds seem to grow a little faster than the vegetables or flowers. You have to adopt whatever measures you find effective to fight those weeds, while at the same time watering, fertilizing and cultivating the vegetables and flowers. The same thing goes on in your mind. It will grow you a rich crop, but you have to keep the soil planted with seeds of thought concerning those things you desire, and make certain that they get plenty of the sunshine of your faith to bring them to fruition. At the same time you must be diligent in the elimination of the weeds of fear, doubt, discouragement and thoughts of self-limitation. 

Here is a poem which expresses these ideas most beautifully: 

Our prayers are answered; each unspoken thought And each desire implanted in the mind Bears its own harvest, after its own kind; Who dreams of beauty has already caught The flash of angel wings. Who seeks to find True wisdom shall assuredly be taught. But thorns of fate have thorny thoughts behind; For out of our own hearts our lives are wrought. Be on thy guard, my soul, lest wind-blown seed Into the fertile soil of thought should fall And lodging place within the garden wall Be given to bitter rue or noxious weed. Unspoken prayers bear fruitage. Love thoughts call Forth into being every loving deed. Idle or earnest, still our prayers are all Answered according to our inward creed. --Bonnie Day
