In an active voice sentence, the subject accomplishes the action, e.g., "I ate guacamole."
In a passive voice sentence, the subject receives the action, e.g., "The guacamole was eaten by me."
It's much more powerful and meaningful for the subject to accomplish the action, which is why active voice is preferred. As a side note, passive voice is not incorrect grammatically, but it is considered weaker from a stylistic perspective.
