Words to Live By

I saw this posted in an Internet meme but wasn’t sure it was true. So I did a Google search and found this quote on Cory Booker’s own Facebook page as well as in an article in the New York Times. As far as I’m concerned the message applies to people of all faiths and people of no faith.

“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.” Cory Booker, D-US Senate from New Jersey

I’d suggest we all try this shoe on and make sure it fits. If it doesn’t you need to get you a shoe stretcher.
