Backing it Up

Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:18)

We've all met them. They're legends in their own minds. They brag and tell war stories and yet when it comes to doing the real tough stuff, they're not around. I went through Ranger school with one such hero. A sergeant who had “been there and done that.” We caught the guy several times weaseling out of the hardships we all shared. His actions did not match his words. As Christians our actions are our greatest credentials. The words merely explain our actions. Live Like Jesus, Love Like Jesus!
