Jesus challenges his disciples in Sunday’s gospel to follow God’s laws not only in external ways but also in their hearts and actions. He recommends not faking worship, but leaving our gifts at the altar and dealing with anger toward someone. Jesus asks us to live God’s laws in our hearts, to act and speak truthfully. “Love Don’t Die” is a song about the ability of our actions to show the world what we truly believe.
Key Lines: If there is one thing, that’s true / It’s not what I say, it’s what I do / And I say too much, yeah, that’s true / So just listen to what I do / A thousand years go by / But love don’t die
Questions: Why do you think actions are so much more important than words? How do your actions and choices show you are a follower of Jesus? Do you think what you believe is as important as how you act? Why or why not?
