For the kingdom of God does not consist in talk, but in power.
1 Corinthians 4:20 (ESV)
You are being watched. The government has a secret system, a machine that spies on you every hour of every day.
If you are a fan of the TV show Person of Interest, you’d have heard the voice of Harold Finch recite the above quote many times.
We are being watched. Maybe the government has a machine, but more than that the world around us is the machine. We are being watched nearly every hour of every day.
As time goes by, it become more and more evident that words are no longer enough. They mean nothing. They are empty. No one is listening. It is our actions that speak so much louder.
If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
1 Corinthians 13:1 (ESV)
If your words are only adding to the noise, perhaps it is time to be silent and let your actions speak for you. Is love something we merely talk about or is it something we do?
