"What you do has far greater impact than what you say."
How are you making a positive difference in the world? Are you being a faithful ambassador of Jesus Christ? It matters how we live our day-to-day lives. The Ten Commandments are there to guide us. The Spiritual and Corporal Works of mercy clue us in as to how to live faithfully. It's not enough to just avoid sins of commission. We are called to also avoid sins of omission.
"When you're good at something, you'll tell everyone. When you're great at something, they'll tell you."
Obviously, if you are a gifted athlete you will know it and so will the people who see you play. If you have made a successful career in music as a singer, composer, or as a musician, people will recognize your gifts and talents.
My question to you is this. Can people look at your life and see a reflection of Jesus Christ? Is holiness as evident in your life as athleticism is evident in the life of a professional athlete?
"Life is like a dogsled team. If you ain't the lead dog, the scenery never changes."
I am not sure what to do with that last quote. I'll simply leave it there for your own reflection.
