One of the reasons that I named this blog Minister Is A Verb is that I have observed that we reveal who we are by our actions. Sure, we may have “beliefs” that are good, just, merciful, faith-based, and all that — but, if we don’t put those beliefs into action, they don’t matter to the world. Actions are how we show what we really believe and actions are how we make an impact on the world.
What you say is often far less important than how, when, and where you say it — and the strongest way to say anything is by doing what you are talking about if it is a good thing and not doing it if it is a bad thing.
This observation (that actions matter more than beliefs or words) is certainly not new, nor is it limited to religious or personal aspects of our lives. Here is an excellent article about taking action in business, aimed at those of us who are entrepreneurs. I trust that those who read this blog are smart enough to see how the statements made in this article apply in their own lives, regardless of how you connect with business.
