How to see medias through God’s Words.

Talk & Action

Posted on

To wholly verbalize without performing any actions
Is that why the society
Only concerns in talking without any actions?

As the saying goes “Actions speak louder than words.”

As I observe some people who are eloquent in words, but no actions are taken to show they mean it.

Sometimes I got pissed off with people who just say and didn’t know how things are done when I asked them to demonstrate and guide me in the process of carrying out the tasks at hand. This happened when I was working in workforce before. There are some people who really know in what they are doing and demonstrate it gently to me how to perform the tasks. Recently, such case happened once in a while. The people can preach about the theories fluently, but when it comes to doing it, they can’t execute it and the things look awry.

As I document the whole transition of my baby’s birth and development, he enjoys doing the things that he speaks such as wear shoes, dance, walk up and down the staircase, wishing to go out and immediately wear his shoes and carry his favourite Doraemon bag. He really expresses what is in his hearts and means it.

For an instance, if you love your parents, will you do something to make them happy? Or course, you will. Through the little things such as patiently guide them how to use the computer, mobile phone and there are many things to show our love for them and our gratitude to them for taking care of us since babyhood and until adulthood.

Let us check from the Scripture as we turn our pages to 1 John 3:17-19 (NIV), “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth. This is how we know that we belong to the truth and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence.

I thank God for slowly building me up in how to express myself properly as time pass by. I am a visual person who has problem in using the right words to express what I mean and what I do.

Book “The Poetry of Yorifumi Yaguchi”

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Jesus Did Not Come Down in the section Words Made Flesh speaks how Jesus endured the mockings when he was crucified (Matthew 27:32-44, Mark 15:21-32, Luke 23:26-36). In the section of War and Peace, the poetry titled “A Military Nurse” mentions about the terrible psychological impact upon a Japanese military nurse after the world war II.

As I read about his biography, the war didn’t diminish his poetic ability. How marvellous in the way he writes his poems and his choice of words. Even though he went through difficult times, his poetic talents describes all the terrible things he observed.

Japanese Movie “Nada Sô Sô” (2006)

Posted on

Yotaro lived sacrificially for his sister’s sake in order to keep his promise to his beloved mum before her deathbed, but he also work hard to earn income to fulfil his dream to open a restaurant.

On the day to open his dream restaurant, suddenly the real land owner appeared. Then he realized that Mr. Kameoka was a swindler. This ended him with a big debt to settle. His dream was dashed.

This shows he is a gentleman, responsible, honours his words, respectful, honest, and a hardworking man.

For the sake of paying his debts, he worked hard day and night until he lost his health. Despite his fever, for the sake of protecting his sister during typhoon, he ignored it and went to her rescue and lose his life at the age of 25.

This is indeed a love in action.

Suddenly, James Chapter 2 verse 17 to 20 came to my mind, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

The first book of Corinthians Chapter 13 verse 4 to 7 speaks about love, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

My mind starts to wonder,
Is this what a disciple of Christ supposed to do?

James 2:17-20 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

So the moral of the story is love in action.
