A famous anthropologist said, “What people say, what people do, and what people say they do are entirely different things.”
That’s a good observation for us as Christians to consider. We talk a lot about the need of prayer. We may even read books and attend seminars about prayer. But how many of the 1,440 minutes God gives you each day do you actually spend in prayer?
We hear messages regularly about the need to share our faith in Christ. We enjoy missionary stories about what God is doing in a foreign country. But when did you last take time to actually talk to an unsaved person about their spiritual condition? How long has it been since you handed out a Gospel tract?
Consider again the quote, “What people say, what people do, and what people say they do are entirely different things.”
If that’s true for you, you might need to work on redeeming the time.
