Bible Reading Day 325

Day 325: November 21 (James 2)

Good morning!

After a waterfall of wisdom nuggets in Chapter 1, James moves to focus on two important topics today: don’t show favoritism, and DO show your faith through your works.

As you reflect on his instructions today, consider this – that the two are related. Our actions show our hearts better than our words. If we fall into the temptation to treat some people with more honor than others, based on outward appearances or benefit to ourselves, our actions show that there is something adrift with our faith. And if we talk a good talk, it is only of value if we also walk a good walk!

So today I encourage you to let your faith in Jesus burn brightly, and catch your actions on fire in radical obedience to His example!

Have a great day!

Mark.
