Don’t Just Say It…Show It!

Don’t Just Say It…Show It!

Everything we do produces a seed and leaves something for future generations. The Bible says in Matthew chapter five to “let your light shine before men that they may see your good deeds.” Notice, people may not necessarily hear your words, but they are certainly going to observe your life. We should always strive to live in such a way that everything we do glorifies God in heaven.

One example is with children. I can tell my children all day long how they are supposed to act and what they are supposed to do, but the truth is that they are going to do whatever they see me doing. When they grow up, they are going to model their lifestyles, choices and relationships after what they have seen and experienced.

That is why it is so important to live as a positive example for your children and family. Show them what it means to live a godly life. You paint a picture with your lifestyle, and your children put their own frame around it! Paint a picture that your children will be proud to frame because your actions are building their future. And remember, it’s never too late to change the picture you’ve been creating. You can create vision and purpose in your home that can be passed down for generations to come because through your example, not only are you investing in your own children, but in your children’s children, too.

Maybe you don’t have any children of your own, but perhaps there are other children in your life. Tell your nieces, nephews and your friends’ children how important they are. Tell them how special they are to God. Your words of faith will be a great deposit in their future. Your actions speak, and you never know what can happen when you affect just one life.

Remember, your life is significant, and the way you live your life is significant. You are a part of God’s eternal plan. You have a pivotal role to play in history. Don’t ever underestimate the power of your actions. Be bold today and follow whatever God has placed in your heart. When you touch one person, your actions ripple out and build a legacy of faith for future generations.
