Sermon in Shoes
Posted by Linda McQuinn Carlblom
When I was a kid we sang a song in Sunday school that asked, "Do you know, oh Christian, you're a sermon in shoes?" Christian or not, your life should speak louder than your mouth about who you are, what you believe, and on what you place the most value. There's no getting around it. The way you live says something about you.
It brings to mind certain celebrities who have said they didn't want to be role models. Too bad. That's what you are, even if you're not a celebrity, because someone is always watching. What we do, the way we live does affect others. So might as well make it a positive influence. Why not bring joy, set a higher standard, model grace in a graceless world?
What kind of sermon is your life preaching? Does it draw or repel others? It's not too late to adjust your message for the benefit of those around you.
