All Words, No Action

“Most men will proclaim his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?” – Proverbs 20:6

Have you ever noticed how true that is? Many people will say, “Oh, I’m so good at doing this,” or “I really display this characteristic marvelously,” but when it comes time to see these things in action, they fail to produce results. Are you one of these kinds of people?

God loves a faithful person, someone who will stick to His words and really obey them. He wants His children to act on their faith and “bear much fruit” (John 15:8). What are some practical ways this can be achieved? We can do this in our everyday lives by displaying the fruit of the Spirit. They are Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self-Control (Galatians 5:22-23).

Some Examples


Tell someone about Jesus today. Pray for someone.


Remember who Christ has made you to be (His chosen, sanctified, set apart, dearly loved child) and choose to remain secure in that fact. Praise Him for it!


Even if situations threaten to make you frantic, choose to remain calm knowing that Jesus is still Lord of all, cherishes you and will help you through the situation/s.


Don’t fly into a rage if you are provoked. Wait on God patiently and cheerfully for something you may have asked Him.


Share something with someone who needs it e.g. a hug, a sandwich, a smile, an instruction. Maybe even some clothing or a prayer.


Be good to others. Bless your parents by being obedient. Bless your sibling by doing something they'd like. Bless a friend by supporting them. Bless the Lord by paying attention to Him and doing His will.


Don’t be harsh toward anybody. Be harmless in all your actions, just like Jesus.


Go and keep a commitment to work, a project, etc. even if you don’t feel like it.


Keep yourself from doing that something you know you ought not to do.

Last Words…

As you go and live this out

Don't forget to pray

For God's help in doing it

And doing it His way
