1 John 3:18 “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
Actions speak far louder than words. People might hear what you say, but credibility is lost if actions run counter. This is true in all relationships, but the greatest indictment might be seen with our children…..or spouse. Pray daily to build relationships where words and actions align. Allow intentions in your heart to play out in daily living. Some may feel shame or hypocrisy with this thought. Don’t fret. Pray about it. Seek forgiveness from the Lord….and make today a fresh start. The Lord loves a broken, contrite heart that is willing to change. Pray with desire to prove a change in action and marvel at the transformation. It may take time, but God will see you along. Don’t give up.
Lord, thank You for consistent words and actions. Help us align both so that You are pleased, thus gaining approval from others.
Walk the talk today.
