Are you a looker or a doer? Do you read Scripture so that you can check it off your To Do list? Or is your time in God’s Word an opportunity to spend time with God? Do you come expectantly, ready to enjoy being in His presence? Do you listen and learn so that you can embrace His perspective? Will you put His Word into practice so that you become more like Jesus? James warns us about the danger of merely looking at or listening to God’s Word (1:22-24). Are you listening?
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.—James 1:25
Lord, as I meditate on James’s words today, don’t let them be simply fleeting impressions. Use Your Word to transform my heart, head, hands, and habits. Make me a doer, not a looker. In Jesus’ name and for His sake, amen.
