"...Known and read of all men."

In School my Family is reading the Biography of Francis and Edith Schaeffer. It is really interesting and inspiring. In the Chapter we were reading today there was a quote that was an eye-opener...

"You write your own autobiography by
the choices you make and the things you do."

What is your "biography" telling others? If we are a "...living epistle known and read of all men." what are we telling people with our lives? We can talk until we are blue in the face about high standards and convictions but if we are not living them what is that going to do? NOTHING. Our words and our actions MUST match up or we can make no difference in the world around us.

Think about.

If someone told you they were not a pack rat but yet they were at every yard sale with in miles buying odds and ends that had no real use would you believe that they were no pack rat? of course you wouldn't.

"...living epistles known and read of all men."

What are people reading about in your life?
