UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People know that talk is cheap and that actions speak louder than words. How are we to live in the regard? Jesus said that our professions of faith must be matched by accompanying action.
Our talk must be supported by actions and they must not be in conflict with each other. It has been said that talk is cheap. But when talk is supported by actions, that talk becomes much more valuable. When our honorable speech and professions are matched by honorable actions, then we gain the right to be heard and believed. Let us have a marriage of our words and our deeds; and what God has joined together, let no one put asunder.
Lord, we know that the power of life and death is in the tongue. May our mouths and deeds always be in sync with each other so that everything that we say or do be for your ultimate glory. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
