LIVING IN ACTION
by: Edgar A. Guest
I'd rather see a sermon than hear one any day,
I'd rather one should walk with me than merely show the way.
The eye is a better pupil and more willing than the ear;
And the best of all the preachers are the men who live their creeds,
For to see the good in action is what everybody needs.
I can soon learn how to do it if you'll let me see it done,
I can watch your hands in action, but your tongue too fast may run.
And the lectures you deliver may be wise and true;
But I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do.
For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give,
But there's no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.
"As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do"
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.
James 2:18 NIV
To the world, you may just be somebody...but to somebody, you may be the world.
