I came across this marvelous excerpt from a recent speech by Cory Booker on the value of demonstrating faith through exemplary behavior and treatment of your fellow man:
Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; Before you tell me how much you love your God, first show me how much you love all His children. Before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.
In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
~ Cory Booker, Senator, New Jersey
