Speak to me.

Kingsland, GA is where I find myself this morning and it is a calm one at that. I have some rather dear friends in this little community and fond memories.

I remember speaking to an older gentleman in this very city about his testimony for Christ. He said, "I let my actions speak for me." Actions speak louder than words, right?

Not really.

No news is good news, not always.

Seth Godin captured this perfectly in a recent blog post:

Sometimes, words speak louder than actions. Imagine how surprising and effective it would be if an infant said, "I'm so hungry, I feel like I might start to cry." Instead of guessing what the problem is, instead of finding ourselves emotionally fraught at all the screaming, we could get to the underlying truth of the problem.

Right on Seth!

Now, we was not referring to the gospel in this post but certainly it applies. What I am arguing for is that we witness with our actions AND our words. As some of you have heard me say before, "When the testimony of our hands matches the testimony of our mouths, this message is clear."

Cheers.

Trust and John 11 pt1

We can't always see God's hand, but we can always trust His heart.
