I enjoyed this post by Donald Miller.

I’ve been drawn lately to understand more about Jesus and try to not judge how far away the Christian church and people have strayed from what he was really all about. This post simply defines for me how walking your beliefs and not just speaking about them can make a bigger difference. If you want people in opposition to your beliefs to listen and learn you first have to walk your talk. I’ve been working hard on doing this in many areas of my life but still have a ways to go. Jesus dealt with people as individuals not as the collective group. He didn’t get into politics and certaintly didn’t get into making laws for governments to enforce or not enforce around his beliefs. Jesus was about action not about sitting around and pointing fingers and feeling righteous. Take a look at your life and see if there are areas you could put more action to work instead of just words. You will be pleasantly suprised at the influece you will have.
