James Jan bible studies- Week 2- Day 2


James 1:22-27New International Version (NIV)

22 Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23 Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror 24 and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25 But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.

26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. 27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Listening enough is not enough. You will need to take action on the WORD you hear. Take good care of what you speak.

Be prudent on who you follow and behave how GOD wants you to behave and not just foolishly follow those who seem to be living GODLY lives but are not. 

 Dear LORD,
Help me keep focus on taking action on your WORD.  Let me use good use of my Tongue for you.
