When we forgive our neighbours from our hearts, our hearts will speak forgiving words.When we are grateful, we will speak grateful words, and when we are hopeful and joyful, we will speak hopeful and joyful words. When our words come too soon and we are not yet living what we are saying, we easily give double messages.
Giving double messages - one with our words and another with our actions - makes us hypocrites. May our lives give us the right words and may our words lead us to the right life. Henri Nouwen
