“You, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?”
Again the message has a greater power when the message has integrity. I remember “blowing my testimony” at a ski trip in Utah, by participation in drug use. I was a hypocrite.
Walk the walk, and talk the talk.
God, your saving work, glorious love, and gift of your presence in my life makes me want to be holy, faithful and true!
