One person committed to a cause is far more effective than a thousand who are merely interested.” (Bill Brown, educator)
People by the thousands sign petitions of all kinds—many of them for worthy causes. But the signatures do very little to actually address the issue. To a boaster who talks loudly but doesn’t do much, you might say, “Put your money where your mouth is.” It’s a rather crude way of stating an important truth: if you don’t act on your ideas, your talk will have little positive effect.
Talk is cheap, like daydreams and other useless activities. (Ecclesiastes 5:7)
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. (1 Corinthians 4:20)
