It's Not What I Know....

It's what I do...

I've heard that again and again lately. And, as I was looking through some previous blog titles, I found this one, and was transported back to the MMA classroom.

This past week, I stood there, as I was reciting The Student Creed. "I will develop self-discipline, in order to bring out the best in myself and others". Always, I think of my kids as the "others".

I know there are ways I could improve my self-discipline that would "bring out the best" in me and my children.

But, it's not what I know that it important.... it is what I DO.

It's the little steps I make day by day, poco a poco, toward the vision that He has for and of me. It is putting what I know into action. It's turning my compass toward Him and focusing my lens on what He is saying and what He is doing in my life. It is listening intently and hearing clearly.

And then, I must respond. I walk. I act.

It doesn't matter what I know....

It is what I DO that allows me to experience Him fully, and lets other people see what I know and believe.
