STOP AND THINK – There is no practical value in believing. The value comes from what we do with what we believe. (Mike Lee, American pastor)

It has been noted before that belief or faith is only as good as the object of that faith. But, as Lee points out, there’s another factor to consider. It isn’t enough to have faith—to believe in a reliable, trustworthy entity. If that faith doesn’t cause you to change, to act upon what you say you believe, then it brings into question whether you really do believe.

Set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)
