Beth Moore James Study Week 3

Jas 1:23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; 

Jas 1:24 for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was.


Jas 2:13 For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.


Highlights (Beth's notes) from my study this week:

Day 1
God reminds us that He didn't plant His word in us just so we could divert it toward someone else's conviction or deliverance...it's first target is our own souls.

Day 2
The self-deception slithers in when we mistake appreciation for application or being touched with being changed.

Day 3
He doesn't ask us to do what doesn't matter. What seems a drop in the bucket to you is a sip from the wellspring of life to someone about to thirst to death.

Day 4
Prejudice of any form is never harmless, never funny, and never to be taken lightly. To sit back and say nothing is to cast a vote of approval.

Day 5
God knows the tendency of the pious to use preoccupation with Him as an excuse to ignore people.
