Practice what you preach what does it mean?
Do you practice what you preach?
I ask. do you practice what you preach? You go to church every Sunday and hear a sermon like say the 10 commandments is the subject of the sermon. You learn each one and its meaning. You believe and understand them all. I understand that it is impossible to keep each commandment to the "T". That was the law of the old testament. In the new testament, you learn that Jesus Christ died for our sins. Because not only we are born in sin no one can follow the ten commandments perfectly. But you also learn that only way to be forgiven of your sins and a way to heaven is through Jesus Christ. You learn this while in the church and you read this in the bible. Now how do you practice what you have learned outside the church?
Do you covet thy neighbor or your loved one just because they are doing better than you? I see people hating the rich because they have money. Does it occur to you they worked for it and earned it by getting the skills through education and training to start at entry level? Then worked long hours and time in their field of profession? They had a desire to succeed so all comes to play in the success in their life.
I see people of all races creeds that want things free even money but do not get much. Their are some that do not wish to work or get the education to succeed. Yes you can succeed even if you did not go to college even though college helps. their are trade schools and community colleges that are more affordable and get grants and financial assistance is easy especially for low income families. If you have a true desire to have a life in what you want to do, you will find a way. Not looking for free money and at the same time coveting others who did succeed.
In the next article I will go over another commandment bear false witness and understanding the truth.
Tho shall not covet
