If you try not to...

When you're into something, really into something, it changes you.

Your game is on? You’re there. Because you were already there for the pre-pre-game show.

A TV channel has all your movies back-to-back? That's your whole weekend.

A casual mention of your team or fandom? You explode with an amazing in-depth analysis. Almost before you know you're doing it.

If you try not to, it's like it's physically painful. 

Sunday's second reading has the famous line "faith without works is dead."  

A little dramatic perhaps, but St. James is explaining faith and works. And that would be?

Faith changes you. And works flow out of faith. 

If you have a living faith, you will find yourself doing good works. Almost before you know you're doing them.  

If you try not to, it's like it's physically painful. 

More on this tomorrow.
