You are what you do.

Psalm 50:23 Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God.

The word ‘conversation’ is the same as ‘way’ in Genesis 3:24 ‘the way of the tree of life.‘ Notice it is not ‘the way unto the tree of life’, but ‘the way of the tree of life. Our word ‘way’ is the same word as ‘conversation’ which to me is very interesting. This is because what we believer, think, say and do are really all the same things. What we do (our way) is what we say and is what we really believe.

If our conversation (way) is ordered aright we will see the salvation of God. If our way (conversation) is right we will eat from the tree of life: Revelation 22:14. I hope you’re seeing the connection.

Many of us profess certain values, but the daily actions of our lives are far from these statements. I can say I’m a writer, but if I do not write most every day and structure my life events to be so I am just kidding myself.

We are what we do and what we say is what we really believe. Is your way of the tree of life? What is your conversation?
