Don’t Just Talk the Talk – Walk the Walk

Don’t Just Talk the Talk – Walk the Walk…

With Grandfather being the Spiritual Leader, I was pretty much raised on the bible and came to know Jesus as my savior early in life. I also learned early in life, that just saying you are a Christian doesn’t make you a Christian. Grandfather made sure I also walked the walk as a Christian to be a living example of Christian life.

Like all of us, I have had a hard life with many pitfalls and rocks in the road. However, I have always been blessed with insight and strength to overcome them. My faith in God has always brought me great comfort and peace.

My Grandfather was a very wise man and set a fine example for me to follow throughout my life. He was always the first to offer help when he saw someone in need. He lead by example and would never ask anyone to do something he wouldn’t, in fact he would step up and show them he could. He was one man that walked the walk of a child of God. He led a simple life full of kindness, love and humility towards all. I strive to follow his example.

Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:25

Pope Francis gave us a lesson in kindness, humility and love. He is another man who lives a simple life and sets the example of Christian living to all he meets. He is soft spoken and unassuming, yet speaks with authority with compassion.

His simple, all inclusive, message to care for the poor, the immigrants, the homeless and to love everyone regardless of their beliefs is refreshing to hear. He puts the Evangelical Churches to shame for their indifference to those in need.

Gods message is very clear about taking care of those in need and it seems, to me, to be a shame that the Pope has to come to the United States to remind us to do what Jesus commanded. Somewhere along the way, the people of the United States have become sideways with what the meaning of being a Christian really means. Maybe what we need is to look in a mirror and ask ourselves about what our walk is really about. Money seems to be the new God to so many. Not quite what the bible says when it comes to Him.

What about you, are you walking the walk or just talking the talk? What act of kindness have you done for a neighbor lately? If you are like many, you will be surprised by your answers.

Blessed are those whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the LORD. Psalm 119:1

Be the true person you seek and lead by example. The blessings you receive will amaze you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
