I Corinthians 4:20-21 (NLT):
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. Which do you choose? Should I come with a rod to punish you, or should I come with love and a gentle spirit?
A lot of people are talk. They talk to you one way but live in a totally different way. This is not only damaging for the person but damaging for everyone around them. We need to practice what we preach. Not only on Sunday morning but 24 hours a day/365 days a year. Are you living this way?
Lord, help me to live out what I preach all the time. Please forgive me when I drop the ball. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen!
