What kind of words are the most potent to benefit others? ( Elder Cleopas )

Spiritual Counsels From Elder Cleopas Ilie of Sihastria Monastery.The most powerful word for edifying others is practical—the example of our lives. St. Isaac the Syrian says the same: “The speech of works is one thing; beautiful words without deeds, another.” Afterwards he adds: “Many words without works are like an artist who paints pictures of water on the wall but is not able to quench his thirst.’’
