There is a lack that needs to be addressed and resolved. It’s the lack of follow through. I think most of us could agree on what types of things are right or wrong and at least have an understanding of what values are. At least in theory.
It’s time to stop saying things with only our words. It’s time we back up our arguments, our beliefs, and our statements with actions that are even bolder.
It can be easy to talk a big game from the safety of social media. There is no one staring you in the face, no friends around to influence you otherwise, no pretense to keep up.
But it is another matter when you are with your family or friends and something happens that tests your beliefs. You don’t really want to stand up for the things you truly believe, it would be easier to just go along with them, or to say nothing at all, the safe way out.
But we need to rise up. We need to go boldly forward with not words, but with actions. Living out our beliefs so that they can be seen.
You probably wouldn’t believe a teacher who was trying to make you believe a subject and he didn’t believe it himself.
So why would others believe us if we aren’t living out that belief?
Start showing and quit talking.
