      That's so true creativeone, we have to walk the walk and talk the talk. If we are not living the life we tell others about, then our words will have no real meaning.

      Thank you for another good lesson but the first time I read the same words I believe in - it is about living the life - and there most of our church-goers fail completely.

      Truly, "Being ordained of God is an honor and a blessing to be cherished." It is a blessing beyond compare and we owe our Lord the best service we can give. And you are certainly right, it is not about talking, it is about LIVING the life that honors our God who has ordained us to our mission.

      Great hub as always Creativeone. Thank you.

      Forever His,
