No doubt you’ve heard the expression, “Actions speak louder than words .” American essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson put it this way: “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” That’s a manner of expressing caution about how you act with others (Colossians 4:5). How do your actions comport with your words? Your behavior informs others as to your nature. Does your behavior reflect the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) or something less appetizing? Your life is a sermon, as another expression goes. Walk the talk.
