What You Are…

21 Oct

Grandfather once told me: Your theology is what you are when the talking stops and the action starts.

We’ve all known people who talk a lot but never follow through and maybe we have been guilty of it ourselves. It’s really nothing but being human, or is it?

Grandfather would say otherwise and he would be very pointed about how he stated it: You are only as good as you follow through with what you promise or more to the point your actions speak louder than your words.

There lies the problem, people seem to separate their everyday life from their spiritual life as if they are two separate lives. In reality they are the same and we are being watched by everyone we cross paths with. Our spiritual life and daily life are one and the same.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in business, a everyday worker, a minister or, like me, just an old retired person the life you live reflects your spiritual values along with your personal values. So face it, you can’t be one person on Sunday and another person the rest of the week. It just doesn’t fly.

We talk about Faith, Hope and Love in respect to God, but then forget these same values extend to everyone in our daily life. Grandfather used to talk a lot about the many faces of God, reminding me daily that all people are created in His image then added a simple message:

God resides in our hearts so remember when you look at yourself in a mirror and then look at everyone you pass, you are looking at the face of God. So live your life accordingly because when people look at you they are seeng God at work. Don’t make Him look bad!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
