Show me, don’t just tell me!

“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith; teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbours. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.” – Cory Booker

This speaks to me personally as I have experienced the darker side of people preaching to me but then treating me harshly, whether I was in their church or not.

Show your beliefs through how you treat people, after all, from my understanding, that’s the point.

Our hearts need to be changed and our actions need to be in resonance with our words or we’re just being hypocrites, which is visible to all from the outside and lastly to those acting in poor faith.

When our actions are in resonance with our words, we show integrity and a functioning moral compass. When they don’t match up, it is not only visible to all from the outside but is potentially hurtful too.

Living a life where our actions speak for us is far more powerful than any negative action taken against someone else.

A light is silent but attracts many to it!!
