Countless Paths to God

Do not admonish them to be godly, but to be good.
Do not tell them to have faith, but to be faithful.
Do not advise them to follow your way, but to find their own.

For there are countless paths to God,
   and no-one can know them all;
And true faiths are innumerable,
   yet all are lived faithfully;
And the ways of God cannot be fully understood.

Yet this does not mean you should not speak.
Goodness speaks to goodness, and a faithful life speaks of God to all.
To share your way does not mean to seek to draw others to it.
Your way will be enriched by sharing theirs, and theirs by sharing yours.
