“Lord, half of my possessions, I give to the poor…” Jesus affirms that “salvation” is more than just words; it involves the action of our lives. Changed people, change their ways. Isn’t it easier to talk about new ways and changed behavior than to actually “live” it. Do my actions show a change of heart? Does my behavior prove a life of faith in Christ? How does the living of my life impact my leadership? – Father, I pray that I might not ask others to do, that which I have not. I pray that I might live the life I talk about. Amen.
