From The Pastor's Page...

A pastor I know says, "Show me how you spend your time and money, and I will tell you what you believe in." We all discern from people’s actions - from their works - what their faith is, what they value most highly. If parents say, "Nothing is more important to us than our children", yet spend little time with the children and are usually critical and impatient with them, we doubt their devotion. On the other hand, if someone takes notice of the needs of others and is kind, generous, and helpful, we think of that person as one who views human beings as beloved children of God.

Jesus expected those who heard and accepted his message to manifest his teachings in their lives. In the parable of the sower, he says, "These are the ones sown on the good soil; they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundredfold" (Mark 4:20).

When persons become members of the United Methodist Church, they profess their faith in Jesus Christ. But they also promise that they will express their faith through good works as they support the ministries of the church through their prayers, their presence, their gifts, their service, and their witness.

What do your works tell others about your faith?
