May Your Life Preach More Loudly Than Your Lips – William Ellery Channing

“I am” are two powerful words which are defined further by what word we choose to follow; however, “I do” is the proof. It is our statement and the tree branch reaching out to the world.  “I am” lacks weight, unless “I do” supports what we believe the “I am” is. 

In a world full of judgement, “I do” may not only leave a statement, but it may also light the candles of many of those who are struggling with their belief of who the world has convinced them to be. If the world has chosen a word like “incapable” for the “I am,” the “I do” can provide a platform to prove the notion wrong and give the world an “I did.”

Our words may plant the seeds of inspiration, but it is our actions that will eventually bear the fruits of this beautiful tree.

  1. Reminds me of the saying “Your actions speak so loudly that I cannot hear what you are saying.” The first time I heard this brought serious awareness that I could either continue just preaching or begin to practice what I preach. In the end, I began preaching less with my mouth and more with my actions, only to discover that by doing so I was able to help many more individuals in this way. Thanks!
