Thought of the Day June 13, 2023 Actions louder than words

By 11:12 AM

 "Actions speak louder than words; let your words teach and your actions speak." (St. Augustine)

Jesus said the same idea in another way. A good tree is known by the good fruit it bears. Or again he said it is not the one who says "Lord, Lord," will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of God. Or again, man judges from outward appearances; God sees the heart. Being a disciple of the Lord, with the identity of a Christian, is not a badge we wear but a life we live in relationship with God. What touches the hearts of those seeking the truth is not words, but a way of life to follow.

How many people have felt the same as Mahatma Ghandi: “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” How many people are turned off because of the life style of some Christians. In the same way, how many people have turned to become a Catholic because of the witness of a true believe.
