"Don't say as you do. Do as you say"
Have you ever wondered what this truly means? I did just that today...[read my comment please]
I've heard this saying before, and now I wonder what this saying means. I suppose, this is great advice towards the advice we give others, yet do not follow ourselves. Another saying that has the same meaning is a famous line delivered by many parents "Do as you are told." Who can forget the saying "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" although this saying I believe is misconstrude.
Everything goes right back to the original saying 'Love others as yourself.'
With that being said, We can all relate to the fact that we all ask (and at times tell) someone or many people to do something, yet we seldomly implement it into our own lives and the manner we conduct ourselves...talk about practicing what we preach. I know I haven't 'done as I say' countless times.
Through all these advices; sayings; meanings, one thing I can be sure of: whomever follows the rules and regulations they put out, will find themselves as one of the many geese in unison onto the same destination. -Awesome!
God bless you
Matthew 22:37-39 (New Living Translation)
37 Jesus replied, "'You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ['Love your neighbor as yourself.']

Psalm 27:4-5 (my prayer)
The one thing I ask of the Lord—the thing I seek most—is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, delighting in the Lord's perfections and meditating in his Temple. For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
