"It Is Not What I Do, It Is What I Say"
"It is not what I do, it is what I say". These words have come from our mouths or been heard by our ears at moments. They are taken in many ways and said with different word orders also. Yes, again "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". The fact is that they are directed to the same spot.
Generally people watch behaviors to approve what is said. Children watch grown ups and as they grow their accusing skills develop to judge what was said and done. We do have a cloud of witnesses, and everything will have effects.
This hub is not to limit people in their freedom, but to bring the importance of consciousness at the moment of decision. This hub is not to limit people to say what they need to say, but to foment common sense of acting on what is preached.

Awareness of hypocrisy is beyond the trust of a speaker. We are analytic individuals. We were created as the ; we are not little, insignificant creatures. At the same time we are not perfect, but we live different levels of maturity and there we gain knowledge to discern the good from the bad. image of God
blinds our capacity of being able to judge the consequences of not following advice. "Look who is talking" will block the good will. This is why discrimination in all means is wrong.

How many examples there are of 'Do as I say, not as I do? The first that I can recall from my childhood and pass it on was one of Aesop's fables: The Boy That Cried Wolf. It is not a children's story, it is for adults to remind us how to educate and expect consequences from our actions.

Perhaps we have screwed up. Perhaps our weakness made us do what we shouldn't have, but if we are on the right path now; we need to fight that good battle and keep running the good race until the end. May those who hear our advice, understand that it is not about what any of us did, it is about what God left us written in His Divine Words. James 1:22 says:
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says."

The power of a smile is often underestimated, as is kindness in general. Are you willing to spread some sunshine in a world that badly needs it?

Blessings to all!
