Talking or Doing?

“Too many of us have a Christian vocabulary rather than a Christian experience. We think we are doing our duty when we’re only talking about it.”—Charles F. Banning.

This fellow may have a point. Someone else said, “When all is said and done, much more is said than done.”

James 2:14-17 says, “What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”

Most of us are pretty good at talking about our faith. Maybe it’s time we let our actions speak for themselves.
