Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Proverbs 155. The proverb today is practice
what you preach. Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. If someone says you should
practice what you preach, it means you should behave in the way
that you advise or tell or even sometimes scold others to behave. The
origin of the phrase comes directly from the Bible, Matthew 23 3. Yeah that's part
of the New Testament. So you know as the Matthew, Mark, Luke ,and John. So that's you
know when Jesus the one the part that's about Jesus" life. All right. But let's
continue. Here's the quote "They preach but do not practice. " All right so that was
from Matthew 23 3. They say it was repeated a lot over the centuries but
became really popular in the 18th century. And I'm pretty sure Charles
Dickens also used it in at least one of his classic novels. Okay Let's , let's take a
look at some of the examples here. Example number one. If you don't practice
what you preach, you will end up looking like a hypocrite. Yeah. That's pretty much
the definition of a hypocrite. Somebody who tells you to behave one way and they
don't do it themselves. Yeah. Remember we, we often heard about that around the
time that I think Al Gore came out with his documentary " Inconvenient Truth " where
he's telling everybody you know, you have to use a lot less electricity,
and cut down on CO2 emissions. But yet he had a house that was burning fuel
outside around the gate of this big mansion. And he was using 40 times the
amount of energy that the average household was using . So in that case
that's what we mean. He wasn't practicing what he was preaching. So this is what we
mean you got to be careful you should practice what you preach because if you
don't you end up , looking like a hypocrite.
Okay. Number two here. If you want to be a role model you know, if you want to be
some person that other people will follow and respect,
you must practice what you preach. Okay. So if you're telling other people behave
this way , you have to do it yourself. Okay. And number three here. Many politicians
like to tell voters how they should behave , but they rarely practice what
they preach. They rarely do it themselves too. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it was
clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
