Beliefs versus Behavior…..

March 22, 2012

I have seen this quote quite a bit lately and I just can’t get it out of my mind…..

“One’s beliefs don’t tell us nearly as much about a person as his behavior does.”

Okay, maybe that is a paraphrase. But you (should totally) get the idea.

I just love this. It’s especially an important reminder for parenting. And really for everything.

If we want to believe in kindness, we must behave kindly.

If we want to believe in honesty, we must behave honestly.

If we want to believe in graciousness, we must behave graciously

If we want to believe in love, we must behave lovingly……

This is all sorts of loverly!
