After All Is Said and Done

“After all is said and done, more is always said than done.”– Aesop

How many of us live this way?  Do we make promises we can’t keep? Do we offer to do more than we can possibly do?  Do our words match our actions?

Differing weights and differing measures—the Lord detests them both. Even small children are known by their actions, so is their conduct really pure and upright? (Proverbs 20:10-11, NIV)

May we be more like Paul, who wrote:

Such people should realize that what we are in our letters when we are absent, we will be in our actions when we are present. (2 Corinthians 10:11, NIV)

Prayer-Father God, may we be the kind of people whose word matches their actions. Amen.
