A Living Sermon

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day.
I’d rather one walk with me than merely show the way.
I can soon learn how to do it if you let me see it done.
I can watch your hands in action but your tongue too fast may run.
All lectures you deliver may be very wise and true,
But I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do.
Though I might not understand you and the fine advice you give.
There is no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.
