words that silence

words. so many words.
saying so many things, but who is listening?
does it even matter?

as long as we live in this material world
the word must become flesh.
Jesus has already demonstrated what it means for God's word
to be in line with one's life.
it is easier to speak words than perform deeds.
it is not enough to speak the truth
it must be spoken in love.
that's the hard part.
"I will follow you Jesus ... but first let me bury my father"
"I will follow you Jesus ... but first let me say goodbye"

deeds. so few deeds.
doing so few things, and how great is the need?

Lord, help me do more
and say less.
