What is on the wall is less important than what happens down the hall. This applies to all of life whether it's at home or in the office or shop, or even in a church. Having inspirational quotes or texts from the bible hung around the house or on the walls of a church building has very little meaning if people are ignored or they are being treated without kindness, justice and respect. Even a bumper sticker identifying oneself as a Jesus-follower has very little relevance if the driver is a tail-gating, road raging, people cursing... well, maybe a bit of hyperbole but you get the point. Let's be authentic. People may admire what's on our wall, aesthetically, but what they really appreciate, what truly touches their life deeply, are the words on the wall lived out in a life. That is something beautiful to admire and maybe even emulate.
