gospel of belief
It takes years to develop a belief system.
We grow up where we are taught what to believe.
And slowly, we form our own habits and beliefs.
We might even want to share those beliefs with others.
And we may even want to reiterate those beliefs to ourselves.
But oftentimes we are still confused.
We are confused by our own beliefs.
We think that we believe what we tell others we believe.
We think that we believe the things we tell ourselves we believe.
But what we actually believe is reflected by one thing…
What we believe is simply reflected by what we do.
“…what I believe is not what I say I believe; what I believe is what I do” – Donald Miller (from Blue Like Jazz)
