James 1:22-25 (ESV)
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
An old mountaineer and his wife who were sitting in front of the fireplace one evening just whiling away the time. After a long silence, the wife said: "Jed, I think it's raining. Get up and to outside and see." The old mountaineer continued to gaze into the fire for a second, sighed, then said, "Aw, Ma, why don't we just call in the dog and see if he's wet."
Sometimes we are lazy! One thing that should really been on our hearts is doing more doing and less talking about doing! God wants us to be doers not talkers.
God has a specific purpose for our lives at such a time as this. Let's start giving Him our all.
Dear Lord, help us to be focused on doing the things that You want us to do instead of just talking about doing them. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
