The Danger of Being "All Ears"


"If you just listen and don't obey, it is like looking at your face in a mirror but doing nothing to improve your appearance. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you keep looking steadily into God's perfect law ... and if you do what it says and don't forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it" (James 1:23-25 NLT).

WE CAN CONFUSE:
  1. Pure faith is WALK, not just TALK.
    "Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone" (James 2:14).

  2. Without action we can DECEIVE ourselves.
    "Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share..." (1 Tim. 6:18).

ASSIGNMENT:
Do one GOOD WORK each day this week.
