Our Doings are the Reflection of Our Thinking and Theology

A kid was asked to do an assignment,
"If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?"
Like it or not, people will judge us by our actions. Small acts of kindness are not insignificant gestures, they are thoughtful expressions which say, without verbalization, “God loves you.” Unfortunately, to many, small acts of kindness are becoming a lost art. Don’t let this happen. Be the one who still place on importance on small acts of kindness which make others feel important in the eyes of God and you.

It is good for us to know that people are not so interested in hearing us expound on our particular philosophy of life or our theological knowledge on everything. I’m not saying that all of these are not important – it is! – But first people are more interested in seeing how our beliefs and convictions are working.

Our actions are reflections of our thinking and theology. If others see that we are joyful, self-control, patient, kindness, truthful, they will ask what we are doing to make these things happen. How God have changed your life. There is not need to be “preachy” because, as the saying goes, “More truth is caught than taught.” Religious people may talk about peace, love, faith and their great happiness in religion, but all we have to do is look at their lifestyles to know just how well it is working. Lord Jesus puts it this way about the false prophets and those who claim their pious religiosity: “By their fruits you will know them” (Matthew 7:16, 7:20). Are you exercising your faith now?

The Holy Spirit be with you. Amen.
