Is it better by word or action?

“The Magdalene’s Gift” by Ruth Councell.

At this moment nothing else mattered. Familiar with little sense of worth and overwhelmed with the journey to find forgiveness — she entered the home and embraced the One who had changed her world forever. Her gift in return was all she had — her tears, her precious oils and her own self — all offered to a man, a healer — one who brought her the gifts of worth and forgiveness.

Images such as these are icons for our own prayers as we seek humility and grace. The question remains — do we speak of our gratitude or do we act upon it? I share this link with you, may it offer you a way to reflect on this question.
