BIBLE READING: II CORINTHIANS 3
2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:
3 Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart
I will be brief today. Just a simple thought on this passage. As Paul writes the church at Corinth, he reminds the reader and himself the writer of this letter of something important. People will read men far more than they will read words. I care more about what you do, than about what you say. Whenever what you say and what you do conflict, they will always influenced more by what you do.
Paul was reminding this church that they meant more to him than just words on a paper. He reminded them that people would read them and their lives as much as they would read Paul’s words. When it comes to our impact on others, it is “not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart”.
As always, I encourage you today to practice the principal from this passage. Let’s remember that our actions matter. Let’s walk the walk. You will be around individuals today that may never hear you say a word, but they are reading you.
