BE, Then Speak
Whether we like it or not, our lives should always be the first thing to speak; and if our lips speak more than our lives it will avail very little. So often the tragedy has been that people proclaim the gospel in words, but their whole life and demeanour has been a denial of it. The world does not pay much attention to them. Let us never forget this order deliberately chosen by our Lord; “the salt of the earth” before “the light of the world.” We are something before we begin to act as something. The two things should always go together, but the order and sequence should be the one which he sets down here.
