#Proverbs – Chapter 10: Actions Speak Louder Than Words!


Proverbs 10:1b

A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother.


Our actions and decisions don’t just affect us. They can bring joy or heart ache to those around us, those we love!Seek the Lord and His wisdom; use that wisdom to guide our decisions. Be wise and bring Joy to those around you. Don’t be foolish and cause others grief.


How do you treat those around you?

Do they see the love of God in your actions and word?

Do they see a difference in you from those who don’t claim to love and follow Christ?

Your behavior and attitude reflect on not just yourself but those you love, those you know, some that you may not know. How you act as a “Christian” reflects on all Christians. We are not perfect but the grace of God is! How you allow him to work in your life is the greatest testimony to his power and love. Do you bring him joy with your testimony? Or Do your actions speak louder than your words?

Be wise and check your attitude, behavior, etc… so that you bring joy to your Heavenly Father and those that may come into contact with you on this journey through life. Do not cause grief from foolishness!


Lord, give me wisdom and guide my behavior and attitude so that I may bring joy to those that you put in my path. Help me not to grieve those around me from my foolishness.
