[color=#000080:125tw91g]I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “actions speak louder then words”. I’ve always pondered how this meshes with the Catholic faith. Do actions speak louder then words? I’m sure it does with God but as the Family of God are we supposed to have such an outlook? My knee jerk answer has always been “no”. Mostly because I can’t get passed “loving your enemy”;;”don’t judge”;;”forgive your brother”;;and all those sayings that point to the reality that what you see, isn’t necessarily what you get.
Well, I think for human perception actions speak louder than words, especially in the case where someone acts opposite of what they preach. There is another saying “Do as I say, not as I do.”
As far as out Catholic faith is concerned I think actions and words are both important. You can hurt people (or God) either way.
