"If you, though a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, how can you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?"
-Galatians 2:14b (NRSV)


Saying and doing, different, but closely related.  We can say one thing and do another and if they are in conflict, they weaken the both.  Recently, I was asked about one of the best ways to love your children and to teach your children.  Husbands, love your wife, and wives love your husband, because by doing this your children will know that it you, the parents love one another and at the same time, set a positive example of what healthy love is.  Children are constantly learning.
Hear the Good News, Christ compels us to to love one another and reach out to one another regardless of socio-economic status.  Christ compels us to love one another, because we are all human beings first.  Do as I say, which Jesus says love one another; do as I do, which Jesus loves us all.Say and do = love.
Oh Father, you love me.  You have loved me and continue to love me.  I am reminded to love you with all of my heart, all of my mind, my soul my all.  I am also to love my brothers and sisters, my neighbors too.  Let me do that, let me make a difference in someone's life today.  Thank You Father, for all You have done in my life and all You will continue to do.  Amen.
