Practise What You Preach

By Gideon, 20 Sep 2021

There is a major difference between preaching and practising.

Advising is not the same as action.

It has become overly easy to preach and advise, often with very little cost or consequence to the one doing the talking.

But doing the talking is not the same as doing the very things highlighted by the talking.

The reality of the matter is, that no word will ever speak as resoundingly or lastingly as action.

For what you’re doing, speaks so loudly that I cannot hear a word you’re saying.

Actions speak louder than words. Always have and always will.

Even faith without works is like a lifeless corpse.

Thus, if you preach love, make sure you practise love.

Or gratitude.

Or forgiveness.

Practise what you preach.

If you advise, make certain you follow your own advice.

Because the preacher is not exempt from practising, no matter the magnitude of words or soundness of thought.

If anything, what you’re practising is the only real thing you’re preaching.
