How does Faith show itself

Some people have a reputation for “telling it like it is”. They speak their mind and you are left in no doubt as to what they think. This can be confronting or it can be quite refreshing. James, the brother of Jesus, seems to be one of those people.

In todays’ reading he says: whoever keeps the whole law, yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it (James 2:10).  That would include every human being! We all need God’s forgiveness, no matter how good we may think we are, so instead of looking at the faults of others, we ought to spend more time thanking and praising God for His grace towards us. Then we will be able to love one another, as He commands.
