Don’t try to walk on the water
Till you walk by faith on land.
Don’t try to move any mountains
Till you move by God’s heartbeat.
Don’t try to preach any sermons
Till your life tells God’s whole truth.
Don’t try to love everybody
Till you know who lives next door.
About This Song:
What Christian wouldn’t love to have the influence of somebody like Billy Graham? But that’s not the goal God has set for anyone but Dr. Graham himself.
No matter how simple this song may appear, don’t let its truth escape you: How can we attempt to accomplish big things for God until we’ve conquered some of the seemingly smaller ones?
Walking by faith, moving in coordination with God’s leading (“by God’s heartbeat”), living a life that gives an accurate portrait of our merciful God, and learning to love the people we already know–these are all major goals to strive for.
