Words vs. Actions
I love listening to speakers and people who share their words, stories and the lessons they’ve learned in life.
When I was little, someone would say something, using powerful words and I would automatically believe them. As I got older and looked back on my life, I realized many people’s words didn’t match their actions. My boss would say one thing then do another. A client would tell me what mattered to them then live out a totally different lifestyle. Sometimes people tell me their family is the most important thing in their lives but they work all the time.
When I listen to other speakers, I’ll often hear them share words like happy, passionate, good, excited, and love. Then, they might not act any of them out. I heard a speaker the other day and they must have told the audience 30 times how passionate they were, but there was no passion in their presentation, and no energy in their words. I started to think: do I believe actions or words more?
Words have great power will you use yours to speak life or steal life from another person today? Once they come out we can not take them back.
Speak life, use your words for good to build people up and not tear them down!
I love the five love languages but my top is Quality of Time. You can tell me until you’re blue in the face that I matter to you but if you can’t spend time with me then it’s hard to believe your words. Actions always speak louder than words to me. What speaks loudest to you?
What does living your best life look like to you?
Do actions speak louder than words to you?
What is your love language? Words of Affirmation, Quality time. Physical Touch, Acts of Service or Gifts?
Do you wait for someone to show you they will do what they say they will or do you take them at their word?
