Concerning your words...

You can say that you are blessed.

You can say that you love your husband.

You can say that your children come first in your life.

You can say that you love God.

You can say that you believe in Jesus.

Your lips, and mine, and the lips of the world, will, and can say many things.

Proof of your heart's intent is in your actions, not your words.

Jesus said so.

You say that you are blessed, then you are happy.

Period.

You say that you love your husband, then you will serve him.

Period.

You say that you love you children, then you will discipline them.

Period.

You say that you love God, then he will be foremost in your mind, and you speak of him.

Period.

You say that you believe in Jesus, then you do as he says to do.

Period.

Jesus spoke of lip-service in Matthew 15.

He was addressing the Pharisees and those who knew the Scriptures.

He said that while they know the Word, and can "talk" it, their hearts are far from him.

What we love, and who we love, we follow.

Our steps take us to who we love, and what we love.

Where do your steps take you?
