True faith goes much deeper than mental agreement or abstract ideas. Faith involves what we think as well as what we believe and how we feel. Faith is a whole-person matter, which means that it must also involve what we do physically in the world.
Especially in some cultures, intelligence and education are given high regard, above many other qualities. If a person can merely discuss a topic at length and make a good argument, she earns a lot of respect. But if we are to show our faith and love in actions more than words, how can our ideas and debates lead to action?
Again, I want to know your stories. Please post about times when what you believed translated into action. When did an idea produce charitable work? When did a value move you to do something, even though it was difficult?
