Inspired by Chocolate?

I opened a little piece of chocolate the other day--as I so often do!--and read the inspiration on the wrapper.  It said, "Don't talk about it, just be about it."

It reminded me of the passage I had just read in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 23.  Talking to the people about the Scribes and Pharisees, Jesus said:  "do and observe all things whatsoever they tell you, but do not follow their example. For they preach but they do not practice."

You could draw the conclusion that Jesus placed a high priority on "being about it."  Most of us probably have good intentions.  Most of us probably have a pretty good understanding of what Jesus taught.

Can we also say that most of us are about the "doing" part?

What do you think?  What does Jesus want us to "practice?"
