It matters

The first reading for Sunday (Acts) shows the Church settling one of its first big debates.  It's pretty basic.  What does it take to be a follower of Jesus? 

The answer gets into the details of how we live our lives.  Some of the specifics are a little out of date.  Not that many people are into meat sacrificed to idols these days. 

But the idea behind it?  It's as current as it gets.  How I live my life matters. 

The example that I set by what I do tells people a lot.  About Jesus, and about what it means to be His. 

So if I care at all, I have to really think about all the things I say.  Without ever opening my mouth. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
