STOP AND THINK – You can speak with spiritual eloquence, pray in public, and maintain a holy appearance, but it is your behavior that will reveal your true character. (Steve Maraboli, author and speaker)

Maraboli’s opening phrase sounds very much like a Bible verse: “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1). The behavior that “will reveal your true character” most effectively is what the Apostle Paul called love. Loving others is speaking with “spiritual eloquence.”

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. (1 John 3:18)
