Well Done > Well Said

Actions speak louder than words. Your actions are speaking loud enough that I can’t hear what you are saying. Actions prove who someone is, words prove who they want to be.

My friends and I were enjoying a trip to the beach after we graduated from high school. We rented a few scooters to ride back and forth from our condo to the local attractions. Traffic was crazy and in the midst of all that was going on I tried to speed out into the road in order to get ahead of some of our friends that were riding in a normal vehicle. Needless to say loose gravel and the inexperience of driving this vehicle wasn’t a good combination. The scooter ended up laying on pavement in oncoming traffic. I rushed to get up in hopes that no one had seen the accident. Obviously that wasn’t the case with the beach being so crowded on a summer afternoon. I got the bike off to the side of the road only to notice that my friends in the vehicle had kept going down the road. They circled around a few blocks later, but in the midst of my embarrassment and where there could have been more significant injuries, these guys left me high and dry. Well Done > Well Said (Greater Than)

I’ve never heard anyone say “I don’t want to do Great things.” But not everyone is going to put forth the commitment or sacrifice to do what it takes to achieve great things. Well Done > Well Said

When an area of our life gets tough, instead of embracing the strain that will eventual make any aspect of your life stronger. We as a society tend to opt out of whatever the situation is. Divorce rates are higher in most areas than ever. Why? Quitting is easier than embracing the struggle and carrying out promises of “death do us part” or “in sickness or health.” Marriage isn’t always 50/50, sometimes it may be 70/30. During that time how will you respond in the toughest times of your relationship? Well Done > Well Said

When a friend breaks our trust, does something that may make us look bad or doesn’t carry some of the same beliefs, what do you do? Our friendship may or may not make it through some of these hard times. How many friends do you have that you honestly can say, this person will truly be there for me through everything, because experiences show that to be the case? Well Done > Well Said

Auburn recently lost a super-regional game against Florida. On the last play of the game a ball was hit to the right fielder when he went up for the catch, the ball tipped off his glove and went over the fence for the go ahead run to end the game. The outfielder couldn’t believe what had just happened and ducked his head in agony. A few of his teammates and one of his assistant coaches greeted him at the wall with hugs of comfort. When things looked bad they were his support group. Well Done > Well Said

In your Christian walk, what will you do when things get tough? When someone close to you loses a fight with cancer, a pregnant woman loses her first child before birth, or the church revokes your right to be on a certain committee. How are these things going to affect your relationship with Christ? Well Done > Well Said

Titus 1:16, “They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.”
