By Our Deeds

February 6, 2013

One night a clergyman was walking to church when a thief pulled a gun on him and demanded his money or his life. When he reached in his pocket to hand over his wallet, the robber saw his clerical collar and said: “I see you are a priest. Never mind, you can go.” The clergyman, surprised by the robber’s unexpected act of piety, offered him a candy bar. The robber said, “No thank you. I don’t eat candy during Lent.”

The man had given up candy as a supposed sacrifice for Lent, but his lifestyle of stealing showed his real character! According to the writer of Proverbs, conduct is the best indicator of character. If someone says he is a godly person, his words can only be proven by consistent actions (20:11). This was true of the religious leaders in Jesus’ day as well. He condemned the Pharisees and exposed their sham for professing godliness but denying that profession with sin in their lives (Matt. 23:13-36). Appearances and words are deceiving; behavior is the best judge of character. This applies to all of us.

As followers of Jesus, we demonstrate our love for Him by what we do, not just by what we say. May our devotion to God, because of His love for us, be revealed in our actions today.

Spiritual words are mere distractions
If not backed up by our godly actions,
And all our good and beautiful creeds
Are nothing without God-honoring deeds. —Williams
Conduct is the best proof of character.

Read: Matthew 23:23-31

Even a child is known by his deeds, whether what he does is pure and right. —Proverbs 20:11
Bible in a Year:
Exodus 39-40; Matthew 23:23-39

Reminds me of the Los Angeles mobster and hoodlum Mickey Cohen, who at one point described himself as a "Christian gangster."

Hi Kathy.

It says I’m civilized; shy, even tempered and never lose my cool. I may be a bit more like that now, but nobody would have said about me 20 years ago. I guess age changes your taste in tacos.

My Mom emailed....my Dad showed up at her desk. This means he went downstairs by himself, which is strictly forbidden. I will have to have a chat when I get home.

THE SOLDIER’S CODE _________________________________________________________________________________________


Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower addresses troops of the 101st Airborne Division
5Jun1944 prior to D-Day Normandy
_________________________________________________________________________________________

The Soldier’s Code _________________________________________________________________________________________

1) I am an American fighting man. I serve in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.

2) I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender my men while they still have the means to resist.

3) If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.

4) If I become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I will give no information or take part in any action which might be harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me, and will back them up in every way.

5) When questioned, should I become a prisoner of war, I am bound to give only name, rank, service number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements disloyal to my country and its allies, or harmful to their cause.

6) I will never forget that I am an American fighting man, responsible for my actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, August, 1955.
