Do Our Actions Speak Louder Than Words?

Actions louder than words

by Dona Hake

“Actions speak louder than words.” It seems this old saying seems to be spoken more after someone has exhibited negative behavior. Truth is our body language is always speaking something even when we are not saying a word. I well know as a photographer that an image is capable of speaking volumes to the one looks at it. Images can freeze a moment for a lifetime and yet an image never speaks a word. Our actions can exhibit things that others see and those actions can be misinterpreted as well.

Let us remember that our actions that proceed from a loving heart and a heart that seeks to do the right thing will speak and produce good things. On the other hand if you are angry or disturbed with someone or a situation, your body language and behavior may be exhibiting something that could be a hindrance to those around you.

Let us be mindful of our actions, because many times they do speak louder than words.

James 3:13 (HCSB) “Who is wise and has understanding among you? He should show his works by good conduct with wisdom’s gentleness.”
