Actions Speak Louder

 Do as I say, not as I do

Have you ever said those words to your children?  You've laid out guidelines that you expect your kids to live by, but then they catch you acting contrary to those rules....

In Matthew 23 Jesus told the crowds and His disciples that they must obey and do everything the teachers of the law and the Pharisees tell them to do.  But He warned them not to do what they do "for they do not practice what they preach." (v. 3)  Basically, their actions didn't line up with their words.

I wonder what Jesus would say about me.... 

I fall so many times - we all do.   But is it my goal to walk out the faith I profess or is my life more "do as I say, not as I do"?

Father help me to be a shining light for you.  I desire to hear you say, "Well done."  Let my actions speak even louder than my words and may I follow You all the days of my life.  In Jesus' Name.... Amen


 Many blessings,
