Just Show Me

October 25th, 2011

“Don’t speak to me about your religion; first show it to me in how you treat other people. Don’t tell me how much you love your god; show me in how much you love all his children. Don’t preach to me your passion for your faith; teach me through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”
— Cory Booker, Mayor, Newark, NJ

Anita Bergen — Today, talk is cheap; hype is the norm and most everyone seems to have an agenda. Don’t talk “at” me. By your actions, show me the depth of your love and compassion – so that I may follow your example, living a life filled with gratitude and blessings.
