Some feelings cannot be expressed in mere words; they require actions to speak for them. We must consistently monitor our actions so that they coincide with the words we say. Words are easy to throw around, but it takes a righteous person to follow through with actions that back them up.
Promises mean nothing without any logical proof. People lie all the time and say things just to appease other people. Actions should meet verbal commitments, not conflict them. If we give off two contradictory messages, verbal and nonverbal, people will have the tendency to believe the nonverbal over the verbal. You can only learn about a person’s true character by watching their behaviors toward you and toward others. If you promise something, people might not believe you until they see you actually do it.
