Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.

– James 1:22-24 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

According to the Bible, to learn something is not enough—we must live what we know. Do you feel a burden for prayer? It does you no good unless you pray! Do you desire to study God’s word? It will profit you nothing until you sit with your Bible and heart open. This is the sin of the information age—we think because we’ve learned something that we are living in that truth. But learning is only the beginning of the journey. Don’t be enticed with the flood of information that is at our fingertips. Take the time to do what you know. There is a blessing waiting for those who do this.
