Today’s reading: James 1:26-27

As we come to the end of James 1, James highlights two areas, and in so doing, provides what I’ll call “doing good” instructions for us as followers of Christ. The first area is our speech, and the instruction is to keep a close watch and a tight rein on what we say. The second area is helping those in need, with the instruction to reach out to people who aren’t in a good position to help themselves like orphaned children and widows.

So how are you doing in these two areas? Do you give concentrated thought to keeping your words in check at work, home, school, when you’re hanging out with friends? Is it your habit to extend help, in whatever form it is needed, to people around you who are hurting? Tami
