Piety: another lesson

Piety: 1. the quality or state of being pious: as
a : fidelity to natural obligations (as to parents)
b : dutifulness in religion : devoutness

(see also: The virtue of Piety)

          Piety is a way of life. It is truly living your beliefs, not preaching about them while not living up to them yourself. If you wish to be pious, show it through you every action, show it every minute of every day, not just when it is the easiest time to do so.

          Our nation, nae... our world is filled with people who believe they live a pious life. They believe with all their hearts they follow their religion to the letter. But so many times they are only following their own or someone else's egotistical interpretations of those beliefs. This causes them to stray so far from the original teachings. Just because you THINK you are following the faith does not mean you are being pious.

         We are thinking intelligent creatures. Take control of what knowledge you take in. Take control on what you are force feed. Take control and learn for yourself what your religious beliefs teach... for only then can you truly live a pious life... and by taking these steps you will find you are already becoming more pious with each step you take.
