Hebrews 13; James 1-2
God, help me to count even trials as joy. I know as You strengthen me to persevere I gain a greater assurance in my faith.
James encourages his readers to be doers, not just hearers of the Word. I wonder if we misinterpret this as don’ters? Do we pick out the negative aspects of these chapters and claim “well, I don’t do that?” The doer actions take more effort and commitment and cannot be replaced by the don’ts. Re-read these chapters, focus on the do’s and pray for God’s direction to be a hearer and a doer.
