Actions speak louder than words, a phrase that is thrown around often, but is very true. As we have been looking at gossip, being honest, criticizing, and complaining; remember actions are powerful as well. We can talk about being followers of God, say we are good people who do good things, but people see our actions. Raising kids is a great example of this. We can teach them to do the right things, but if they see us doing wrong, they are going to think it’s OK, regardless of what we say. We can speak volumes without saying a word!
1. Think about the people around you on a daily basis. Who could be watching you?
2. What are they seeing?
Challenge: Seeing yourself through others’ eyes can sometimes be a very uncomfortable view. If we honestly consider this, we often don't like what we see. There is good news, however. You can change who others see today, just by making small changes in your daily life. People around you will notice the difference!
