Don’t Just…

Don’t just learn, experience.

Don’t just read, absorb.

Don’t just change, transform.

Don’t just relate, advocate.

Don’t just promise, prove.

Don’t just criticize, encourage.

Don’t just think, ponder.

Don’t just take, give.

Don’t just see, feel.

Don’t just dream, do.

Don’t just hear, listen.

Don’t just talk, act.

Don’t just tell, show.

Don’t just exist, live.

-Roy T Bennett

  1. Don’t just be separated, be one…
    Don’t just see outwardly, see inwardly
    Don’t just be you, become Him…
    Don’t just be full of thoughts, be empty…

    Thank you very much, my dear friend – I like it 🙂
    Have a great time

    Wonderfully inspiring, Kirby. Thanks for sharing Bennet’s poem. Can you imagine a world where more people gave more effort to such ideals as these? Wow. However, I can think of only one person who was able to live up to these standards 100% of the time: Jesus.
