: I would appreciate if someone could construe the meaning of the following saying to me : Put your money where your mouth is

: Thanx in advance

I am guessing that the original meaning referred to betting. For example, if you think a horse is so great, then wager that the horse will win. Now it has a broader meaning beyond gambling. If you talk about animal rights, then put your money where your mouth is and donate time and money to your local animal shelter.
