😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace and presence be with you. Matthew 23:1-3 “Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees have taken their seat on the chair of Moses. Therefore, do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice.”’ Until now, I didn’t realize that, “Do as I say, not as I do.” was paraphrasing the Bible. Did you?
Are you a people watcher? As infants fresh from the womb, we don’t know or understand what people are speaking to us, so how do we first start learning? People watching. Throughout our entire lives, it’s in our very nature to learn by watching. Now, on the flip side, that means that others are also watching and learning from your actions, hence, actions speak louder than words.
The words we speak may be wise, prophetic, encouraging, supportive, loving, etc., but if our actions contradict the words we speak, then all credibility, trust, respect, etc. is lost. Don’t be of quick action and wit. “Help me Jesus.” “Holy Spirit, guide me.” “Father, hold me.” These are just a few examples of quick, meaningful prayers that can give you just enough pause to help you from diving head first into a kneejerk reaction or response. Allow yourself a moment to breath before you act/react, so that your actions and words send one message, not two.
Bless others and be blessed.
