July 30 – August 5
To Do or Not to Do?
Scripture: “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” James 1:22
Devotional: “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?” This line from the wicked witch in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs reflects the power of what we think we see, or what we want to see. However, good, flawless mirrors always tell the truth regardless of what we think or what we interpret. When we look at the mirror of God’s word, we see our imperfections, but we also see Christ’s perfection and through Him, we have restoration as a result of living His word and not just hearing his word!
Prayer: Lord, we love You and we praise your Holy name! Help us to prepare our hearts and minds to be active and willing participants for your Kingdom. Heavenly Father, allow us to be devoted to discipling ourselves to carry out the power of your Holy Word which you have given to us, in order that we be your witnesses to those that we may encounter, in Jesus Christ we pray, Amen and Amen!
Reflection Question: What will you do when you encounter someone who needs encouragement?
