This doesn't necessarily have to be a religious answer. So all answers are welcome... I think, looking at myself I do try my hardest to practice what I preach. Not only in my spiritual life but the way I treat others and live my life. In the religious aspect, I will admit, it has been awhile since I've been in church and I really need to get back to working harder in my walk with God. But I will say that I am not one that will preach to you, tell you to go to church or force God down your throat like some do because I'm not living right so how can I tell you how to live? I will give my knowledge in what I know from experience if you ask for it but I won't tell you you're living wrong if I am too. I know alot of people who "talk" way too much and think they know everything and try to tell you what you're doing wrong but their lives show the TOTAL opposite. So I always try to think before I ever give any advice or correct a person if I think they're really in the wrong. How do you feel, do you think you're one who as they say "puts your foot in your mouth" or is it really important to you that you "practice what you preach"?

I do try to pracise what I preach but the things that I don't they always seem to come around and haunt me. But it is nothing to do with the way I live my life, or religious it is just that I tell my other friends that they should see the dentist when I don't that is my main problem. I really hate them, so I do not go straight away when I should.

It is very difficult to put into action and practice what we say and think on a regular basis because not all thime are we conscious of the way we act. Most people are truly best in being righteous and can do nothing more than preach but some are actually living models of what they speak of. As human beings, we try our hardest to always be the best. I myself, as much as possible, do everything I can to the best of my abilities and whatever it is that I say I try to live it. People should always lead by example because that is the only way other individuals would actually believe them. Credibility will always be on the line and we can't just always preach and not put it into action.

Yes, you are very right, it is difficult to do it on a regular basis but we can sure try our best at it. I agree too, we should always lead by example, perfectly put. Thanks:)

I've always been one to keep my mouth shut about certain situations. The only time I say anything is if people ask my opinion, than I'll give an honest one. I have never gone around saying people are living their lives wrong. After all it is their life, and can live it the way they want to. It is not my place to place judgements on them. It would be wrong of me to do so, since I am far from being perfect myself.
