this from RS today

The lesson was on the Creation so you can see the topic veered. I am glad. I needed the reminder.

What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

How you treat your spouse.

How you take care of yourself.

How you speak to others.

What's important to you.

How you handle stress.

How you cope with hardship.

Who you spend time with.

What you spend your time on.

Your order of priorities.

How you speak of others.

What you value.

What you don't value.

Having a checklist mentality is probably not the best way to measure or gauge progress in discipleship. Still what we do day in day out reflects who we are. And who we are influences others, whether we wish to or not. The checklist is sobering.
