Substance is essential nature; a fundamental or characteristic part or quality; practical importance. We all have substance physically. We are made up of various parts that make us whole and give us substance. There is a non-physical aspect of this word that I want to talk about today.

Our lives are also made up of attitudes, desires, actions, thoughts, and so much more. We are 3 parts body. soul, and spirit. We must have substance in each of those areas. There are times when we need to just chill to relax, maybe to be mindless that allows our bodies time to heal and recuperate from the daily grind. The other times we need for what we think, say, and do to have substance. We need to think thoughts that are good, and lead us to say or do things that are right. We need to say what we mean and mean what we say. And we need to do things that enhance our lives and the lives of others. We need to have substance, the things we think, the words we say, the actions we take need to have meaning.

Lord help me to be a person of substance. Let every thought I think, every word I say, and every action I take be meaningful and glorify you.

The Quote:
"We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives. We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance and truly begin to live our dreams" ~Les Brown
