Monday Musings....

So, another busy day here.... the kids are helping out with chores, I taught my class and had mother over for dinner (we had spaghetti with ground turkey).


Anyway, I came across a quote and wanted to share it.....

The world judges you by your actions, not your intentions.

I don't remember who said it but it has kinda stuck with me.....

Christians know about this little saying all too well, for our actions speak volumes to those in the world. All good intentions put aside, it is our actions..... especially our day to day actions that those lost in sin will target. We can want to mean well all day long, but when we let fly our tempers, we find ourselves caught up in the latest gossip, or even a unsympathetic comment during our day ..... it is those actions that will cause others to judge.

Our lives are made up of moment by moment choices and its those seemingly minute choices that will shout out on our behalf.

James 2:22 (NLT) You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete.

Hi Traci! I found your blog through Tina's. I am a fellow Tennessean, living in West Tennessee, and I think it is so funny that I would find you through a blog in Scotland! LOL! Thank you for this very insightful post. It is so true that we have to really think about what we are doing every moment, how we treat people, etc., because the world is watching our example. I just posted something similar to this a little bit ago. Come visit my blog if you have time! praisemom.blogspot.com

Blessings,
April :0)
