I opened a little piece of chocolate the other day–as I so often do!–and read the inspiration on the wrapper. It said, “Don’t talk about it, just be about it.”
It reminded me of the passage I had just read in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 23. Talking to the people about the Scribes and Pharisees, Jesus said: “do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice.”
You could draw the conclusion that Jesus placed a high priority on “being about it.” Most of us probably have good intentions. Most of us probably have a pretty good understanding of what Jesus taught.
