1 Timothy 4:16
“Watch your life and your doctrine closely. Persevere in them because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.” 
Doctrine is important. Equally important is the way I live my life. It is not enough to merely have head knowledge about what God’s word teaches–it must be lived out in daily life. 
It can be easy to get narrowly focused on points of doctrine. Doctrine is vitally important, but it is only half of the equation. I must also “live out” God’s principles in my life–because true transformation doesn’t come from mere knowledge. It comes from walking daily with the Savior and letting Him be the Lord of the decisions I make and actions I take.
Godly talking, plus Godly walking, leads to God-sized change. 
God, thank you for the sacred truths found in your word! Help me live with daily discipline to not only learn about you, but also walk daily with you.
