“To be good is noble but to teach others how to be good nobler – and no trouble” said a well known writer. This may account for the great preponderance of preaching over practice. We don’t mean the preaching which we get from the pulpit, but that which is given freely and without stint in buses, in the streets and even in the homes of our land. Where is the parent who doesn’t discover himself telling his child not to do just what he himself does regularly? How many people are there who are certain that they know just how to make fortune, and who tell others so? and they have never made anything save financial mistakes. The man who never swam a stroke feels perfectly competent to tell another how to swim. The man who cannot find his way even to a modest competence knows just how to save the nation from all its economic ills.
It is no trouble to preach, but it is considerable trouble to carry out what we preach. This is so true that the honest preacher preaches to himself even more than to his hearers in every season. Only the man who is striving to climb the loftiest height knows just how to difficult is the way. And so the man who climbs as he preaches will preach all the more earnestly, and the more effectively, because he is trying to answer his own prayers and work out his salvation.

Precis: The supremacy of preaching over practice

To preach goodness is noble than to practice it. It is generally seen that those who fail in practice are best suited to the work of preaching. The man who known to make a fortune is one who does nothing but financially mistakes. The man who never swam knows how to instruct another in a small competition knows just how to save the country from all its economic troubles. The truth is that only that man who has himself suffered difficulties can most earnestly and effectively tell others the way to success.
