Show Me – Don't Tell Me...

 


I have often felt that much of my education taught me how to make a living and do a lot of good things, but it didn't teach me how to live or make a life. That I have had to learn the hard way—and am still learning how to do that.

Nevertheless, my education did teach me many valuable lessons. One that I have never forgotten was from my journalism professor. Time and again in bright red he would write on my papers, "Show me. Don't tell me!"

I like to apply the "show me—don't tell me" principle in my writings. Until we do this, our words won't carry much weight.


Like Mother Theresa wisely said in words to this effect: "Witness at every opportunity. Use words when necessary."

In other words, "To win some we need to be winsome."

Dear God...
please help me...
to so live the life...
that others...
seeing ...
what you have done in my life...
will want you...
in their lives as well....
 
Thank you for hearing and answering my prayerz...
