Share a verse that has encouraged you or stood out to you lately!
James 1:22, "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."
I know that I have read this verse many times, and have said, "Amen" in my heart!! I agree - it's not worth anything to just hear the truth. We have to do something about it - put "feet to our faith" so to speak.
But, if I'm honest, I'd have to say that very often I play the role of the "hearer" in life, and not the "doer".
Example: I finished Ann Voskamp's book, 1000 Gifts a couple of weeks ago. While reading it, I was challenged to start my own list of blessings (if not to link-up each Monday, at least in a journal or notebook). Have I started yet? No.
Then last night during our small group we talked about being intentional with our thanksgiving for Him, and I even mentioned Ann's challenge to count 1000 gifts. I was reminding once again that I need to get "doing" not just "hearing".
We're snowed in today, but as soon as I can, I'm planning on buying a notebook and starting my list! (You can feel free to keep me accountable).
I want to be a "doer"!!
Now it's your turn!! Share your passage in the comments!!
Have a marvelous weekend, friends!!
