Have you ever heard the expression..."Actions speak louder than words?"
I think we can talk until we are blue in the face when we are trying to lead someone to the Lord...but unless our actions line up with our words, people are not going to be interested in what we are saying.
And if we are not excited about our own Spiritual journey, then why in the world would anyone want what we have?
Today in the devotional Our Daily Bread... it just remined me that it is better to walk alongside someone and show them the way to the Lord, instead of just telling them about Him.
I truly have a desire to help people find Jesus...and I know His Word is necessary...but I just think they won't even want to listen to the talk if we are not walking the walk. And they also will be more apt to listen if we learn how to speak the truth in love!
SPEAK THE TRUTH IN LOVE
Ephesians 4:15 NLT
..."We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church".
This devotional blessed me and refreshed me...and I hope it will do the same for you!

Also...will you please be in prayer today for my grandson William? He will be 16 in 3 months and he got into some trouble last summer with some of his friends doing pranks, and has a court interview tomorrow morning (WEDNESDAY)...and then he will go back in June to hear what they decide. Please pray for my daughter as she goes with him. Please pray for grace...and for God's will to be done. And please pray for grandma too...that I can trust in God and rest in Him....cuz I love my boy so much! Thank you.
Prayer changes things!
