SHOW DON’T TELL

20190412_233955701_iOSWriters are always reminded to “Show, don’t tell”. That advice is wisdom for life too.  It is easy to verbally express our beliefs, our opinions, our thoughts, but much more challenging to act upon those with conviction.

We can and do express outrage at injustice, however, we keep our wallets tightly closed when called upon to “put our money where our mouth is”.  We need to take action–for Love is an action verb, and we are called to Love One Another. (1 John 3:18; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Romans 12:19).

We are not called to be God in the world – to judge and destroy.  Rather, we are called to be Jesus…to love, forgive, show mercy and demonstrate kindness. (Ephesians 2:10; 1 Corinthians 11:1; Romans 12:19).

Do not tell me what you do or believe – that is not impressive.  Rather, show me who you are by what you do. (Luke 6:27-36; Matthew 7:15-23).

When we love one another we receive blessings in abundance. Giving/serving others is indeed better than judging, condemning and criticizing…better for mental, emotional, spiritual and physical health. Peace to all.

About doctoraquarius

As long as I can remember I have written - poems, observations, stories. Then graduate school, marriage, raising a family, and work occupied my life 100% of the time, and my writing for pleasure took a back seat. I'm back. Retirement from my professional life as a school psychologist, grown children, and an empty nest have freed me to follow my passion. My wonderful husband of nearly 40 years encourages me and my God sustains me.
