Practice what you preach
April 27, 2007 1:08am CST
Have you ever given advice to someone and forgot to use it yourself? Worked at a job where you gave things such as financial advice but your bank account was a mess. Helped a friend find the perfect weight loss plan but failed to use it yourself. Got new people involved in your church but slacked on your own resposibilities to the orginization. Helped someone give up a bad habit but continued with your own. I don't know about you but I am guilty of not practicing everything I preach. I really realized this this morning when a friend asked me what to do in her messed up relationship and I gave her some really good advice, then I looked back at what I told her and thought I don't use them same ideas in my own relationship. I had to ask myself how I new what to tell her but didn't do it for myself. Anyone else ever preach but not practice, please give us the details.
