Being and Doing
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. (Plutarch, ancient Greek philosopher)
To put it another way: what we are is more important than what we do, because what we are determines what we do. Conversely, what we do reflects what we really are. It’s important, of course, to perfect our skills and abilities. But when we are careful to develop our heart, mind, and attitudes, we will be most effective in the use of our physical abilities.
A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart (Luke 6:45).
